Annotea on Mozilla
Annozilla 0.3.2 released
Another maintenance release, this time for Mozilla 0.9.8 (this should
also be compatible with 0.9.7). Other changes in 0.3.1
- Goes directly to the annotation server, instead of via the bookmarklet
- Uses fixed positioning in the sidebar to display the title and annotation
body at all times
This is the the Annozilla project, designed to view and
create annotations associated with a web page, as defined by the W3C Annotea project. The idea is to
store annotations as RDF on a server, using XPointer (or at least XPointer-like
constructs) to identify the region of the document being annotated.
The intention of Annozilla is to use Mozilla's native facilities to
manipulate annotation data - its built-in RDF handling to parse the
annotations, and nsIXmlHttpRequest to submit data when creating
To use Annozilla, you will need to install the
code, get set up with a user account with an annotation server (e.g., the W3C test server), and then
you should be ready to go.
You can also see some screenshots - an
example of the sidebar in action, and the preferences panel.
