Help documentation for Mozilla Calendar
</h3>

<p>
The CalendarHelp project aims to provide help documentation
for end users of Mozilla Calendar:
<blockquote>
<ul>
<li>In all Calendar versions (the extensions for
<a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/">Thunderbird</a>,
<a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/">Firefox</a> and
<a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/mozilla1.x/">Mozilla Application Suite</a>,
and the standalone Sunbird)</li>
<li>On all operating system platforms that Calendar runs on</li>
<li>In English and all Calendar's other languages</li>
</ul>
</blockquote>
</p>

<h4>How CalendarHelp works</h4>
<p>
You install CalendarHelp as an extension.
When you are using your Calendar application, there is a new item in the
Help menu: Help Contents.
This item opens a separate help window that contains the help,
with a table of contents, index, search facility and glossary.
</p>

<p>
The F1 key (or Help key) opens the help if it is not already open,
and switches to the topic that describes the element in the user interface
that has keyboard focus.
</p>

<p><strong>Note: </strong>
Before you install CalendarHelp, F1 switches to the Day view.
After you install CalendarHelp, F5 switches to the Day view.
</p>

<p>
For a picture of the prototype, see the 
<a href="screenshots.html">screenshots</a> page.
</p>

<h4>Current status</h4>
<p>
The current version of CalendarHelp is a prototype for Sunbird
with very little content.
</p>

<p>
You can download and install this prototype to see what it looks like.
For details, see the
<a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org/installation.html">Installation</a> page.
</p>

<p>
If you are a Mozilla Calendar user looking for help with the application,
then you have come to this CalendarHelp project too early.
It will be some time before there is enough content here to make the help useful.
Meanwhile, you can find information in Mozilla Calendar's
<a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/faq.html">FAQ</a> and
in its <a href="news://news.mozilla.org/netscape.public.mozilla.calendar">newsgroup</a>.
</p>

<h4>How you can help</h4>
<p>
This project needs reviewers and translators.
</p>

<p>
If you use Mozilla Calendar,
and if you have a good understanding of how it works,
then you can contribute to the project by reviewing one or more chapters.
For more information, see the
<a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org/contribute.html">Join in</a> page.
</p>

<p>
If you use Mozilla Calendar in another language, and if you can translate the English
help into your language, then you can contribute to the project by translating
one or more chapters.
For more information, see the
<a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org/contribute.html">Join in</a> page.
</p>

<h4>Relationship to other projects</h4>
<p>
The CalendarHelp project overlaps parts of 
other proects, and it might conflict with them.
But at this early stage, none of this is clear.
