   44: Help documentation for Mozilla Calendar
   45: </h3>
   46: 
   47: <p>
   48: The Calendar Help project aims to provide help documentation
   49: for end users of Mozilla Calendar:
   50: <ul>
   51: <li>In all Calendar versions (the extensions for
   52: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/">Thunderbird</a>,
   53: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/">Firefox</a> and
   54: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/mozilla1.x/">Mozilla Application Suite</a>,
   55: and the standalone
   56: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/sunbird.html">Sunbird</a>
   57: )</li>
   58: <li>On all operating system platforms that Calendar and Sunbrd run on</li>
   59: <li>In English and all Calendar and Sunbird's other languages</li>
   60: </ul>
   61: </p>
   62: 
   63: <h4>How Calendar Help works</h4>
   64: <p>
   65: You normally install Calendar Help as an extension.
   66: It is also available <a href="open.xul">online</a>, but the
   67: online version is experimental and it has some limitations.
   68: </p>
   69: 
   70: <p>
   71: When you are using your Calendar application
   72: with the Calendar Help extension, there is a new item in the
   73: Help menu: Context Help.
   74: This item opens a separate help window that contains the help,
   75: with a table of contents, index, search facility and glossary.
   76: </p>
   77: 
   78: <p>
   79: The F1 key (or Help key) opens the help if it is not already open,
   80: and switches to the topic that describes the element in the user interface
   81: that has keyboard focus.
   82: </p>
   83: 
   84: <p>
   85: If you are working with a dialog, a Help button at the bottom of the dialog window
   86: opens the help if it is not already open,
   87: and switches to the topic that describes the dialog.
   88: </p>
   89: 
   90: <p>
   91: For a picture of the prototype, see the 
   92: <a href="screenshots.html">screenshots</a> page.
   93: Future versions will look a little different,
   94: because of changes in the help viewer.
   95: </p>
   96: 
   97: <h4>Current status</h4>
   98: <p>
   99: The current version 0.5.1 of Calendar Help documents most of the user interface
  100: in Sunbird and Calendar extensions.
  101: It also contains information on customizing Calendar, on servers and on troubleshooting.
  102: </p>
  103: 
  104: <p>
  105: A test version 0.6 of Calendar Help is available for nightly test builds of Sunbird 0.2+.
  106: These builds are not all stable, so they are not recommended for general use.
  107: Version 0.6 of Calendar Help does not completely document Sunbird 0.2+,
  108: but it will gradually improve as the content is reviewed and updated.
  109: </p>
  110: 
  111: <p><b>Note: &nbsp;</b>
  112: There is no relationship between the version numbers of Calendar Help,
  113: Sunbird, and the Calendar extension.
  114: The projects are not synchronized.
  115: </p>
  116: 
  117: <p>
  118: To download and install Calendar Help, see the
  119: <a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org/installation.html">Installation</a> page.
  120: </p>
  121: 
  122: <p>
  123: You can find other information about Calendar in Mozilla Calendar's
  124: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/faq.html">FAQ</a>,
  125: in its <a href="news://news.mozilla.org/netscape.public.mozilla.calendar">newsgroup</a>
  126: and in its <a href="http://wiki.mozilla.org/Calendar:Home_Page">wiki</a>.
  127: </p>
  128: 
  129: 
  130: <h4>Calendar Help online</h4>
  131: <p>
  132: The <a href="open.xul">online version</a> of Calendar Help is experimental.
  133: It might be moved to a different web server, or withdrawn completely.
  134: </p>
  135: 
  136: <p>
  137: The online version is built from the same source text as the installable version.
  138: At times, the online version might contain more recent revisions than
  139: the installable version.
  140: However the online version is currently frozen while work progresses on
  141: version 0.6.
  142: </p>
  143: 
  144: <p>
  145: The online version has some limitations:
  146: </p>
  147: 
  148: <ul class="plain-list">
  149: <li>It only works in Mozilla browsers.</li>
  150: <li>It contains only the help for Windows versions, so Macintosh and Unix users might find it a little less easy to use..</li>
  151: <li>It combines the help for Sunbird and the help for Calendar extensions,
  152: so some topics are less easy to understand.</li>
  153: <li>It does not support the F1 key to go directly to a help topic related to a field in the user interface.</li>
  154: </ul>
  155: 
  156:
