   47: Help documentation for Mozilla Calendar
   48: </h3>
   49: 
   50: <p>
   51: The Calendar Help project aims to provide help documentation
   52: for end users of Mozilla Calendar:
   53: <ul>
   54: <li>In all Calendar versions (the extensions for
   55: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/">Thunderbird</a>,
   56: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/">Firefox</a> and
   57: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/mozilla1.x/">Mozilla Application Suite</a>,
   58: and the standalone
   59: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/sunbird.html">Sunbird</a>
   60: )</li>
   61: <li>On all operating system platforms that Calendar and Sunbrd run on</li>
   62: <li>In English and all Calendar and Sunbird's other languages</li>
   63: </ul>
   64: </p>
   65: 
   66: <h4>How Calendar Help works</h4>
   67: <p>
   68: You normally install Calendar Help as an extension.
   69: It is also available <a href="open.xul">online</a>, but the
   70: online version is experimental and it has some limitations.
   71: </p>
   72: 
   73: <p>
   74: When you are using your Calendar application
   75: with the Calendar Help extension, there is a new item in the
   76: Help menu: Context Help.
   77: This item opens a separate help window that contains the help,
   78: with a table of contents, index, search facility and glossary.
   79: </p>
   80: 
   81: <p>
   82: The F1 key (or Help key) opens the help if it is not already open,
   83: and switches to the topic that describes the element in the user interface
   84: that has keyboard focus.
   85: </p>
   86: 
   87: <p>
   88: If you are working with a dialog, a Help button at the bottom of the dialog window
   89: opens the help if it is not already open,
   90: and switches to the topic that describes the dialog.
   91: </p>
   92: 
   93: <p>
   94: For a picture of the prototype, see the 
   95: <a href="screenshots.html">screenshots</a> page.
   96: Future versions will look a little different,
   97: because of changes in the help viewer.
   98: </p>
   99: 
  100: <h4>Current status</h4>
  101: <p>
  102: The current version 0.5.1 of Calendar Help documents most of the user interface
  103: in Sunbird and Calendar extensions.
  104: It also contains information on customizing Calendar, on servers and on troubleshooting.
  105: </p>
  106: 
  107: <p>
  108: A test version 0.6 of Calendar Help is available for nightly test builds of Sunbird 0.2+.
  109: These builds are not all stable, so they are not recommended for general use.
  110: Version 0.6 of Calendar Help does not completely document Sunbird 0.2+,
  111: but it will gradually improve as the content is reviewed and updated.
  112: </p>
  113: 
  114: <p><b>Note: &nbsp;</b>
  115: There is no relationship between the version numbers of Calendar Help,
  116: Sunbird, and the Calendar extension.
  117: The projects are not synchronized.
  118: </p>
  119: 
  120: <p>
  121: To download and install Calendar Help, see the
  122: <a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org/installation.html">Installation</a> page.
  123: </p>
  124: 
  125: <p>
  126: You can find other information about Calendar in Mozilla Calendar's
  127: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/faq.html">FAQ</a>,
  128: in its <a href="news://news.mozilla.org/netscape.public.mozilla.calendar">newsgroup</a>
  129: and in its <a href="http://wiki.mozilla.org/Calendar:Home_Page">wiki</a>.
  130: </p>
  131: 
  132: 
  133: <h4>Calendar Help online</h4>
  134: <p>
  135: The <a href="open.xul">online version</a> of Calendar Help is experimental.
  136: It might be moved to a different web server, or withdrawn completely.
  137: </p>
  138: 
  139: <p>
  140: The online version is built from the same source text as the installable version.
  141: At times, the online version might contain more recent revisions than
  142: the installable version.
  143: However the online version is currently frozen while work progresses on
  144: version 0.6.
  145: </p>
  146: 
  147: <p>
  148: The online version has some limitations:
  149: </p>
  150: 
  151: <ul class="plain-list">
  152: <li>It only works in Mozilla browsers.</li>
  153: <li>It contains only the help for Windows versions, so Macintosh and Unix users might find it a little less easy to use..</li>
  154: <li>It combines the help for Sunbird and the help for Calendar extensions,
  155: so some topics are less easy to understand.</li>
  156: <li>It does not support the F1 key to go directly to a help topic related to a field in the user interface.</li>
  157: </ul>
  158: 
  159:
