    How do I use this jquery plugin?

    This is probably the worst question ever uttered onto this forum, but I have really no javascript nor jquery experience. I just want to use this code on my site, and be on my way. The code is timeago and can be found here: http://timeago.yarp.com/

    The steps to use the timeago plugin seems really simple. Unfortunately, I am a pretty simple man, and do not know how to use it.

    Can someone babywalk me through this? I just go to the second part (domready) before I was in utter confusion, with google not helping.

    Please, all feedback will be useful. Thanks!

    1) download the latest jquery javascript file from http://jquery.com/, and the timeago script from that site.
    2) paste it in the head of your document:
    HTML Code:
    <script src="jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="jquery.timeago.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    3)open a new <script>, and add the script:
    HTML Code:
    <script>
    jQuery(document).ready(function() {
      jQuery("abbr.timeago").timeago();
    });
    </script>
    4) make an abbr with a timeago class.
    HTML Code:
    <abbr class="timeago" title="2008-07-17T09:24:17Z">
    and the rest is in that link.
