    Hi Jorgen,

    I think I was mistaken about the Windows Live ID OP. I must confess that I only experimented with it briefly and I may have made an error when I was testing.

    I notice that the directed identity endpoint http://openid.live-int.com/ declares openid2.provider in its HTML, which is not supposed to be declared for a directed identity endpoint. The endpoint is, however, using the Accept header to trigger sending back an XRDS document with the correct information in it, so I think perhaps this was the source of my confusion. Having tried it again now I see that it does work as expected.

    I apologise for posting misleading information. It may be worth considering removing the element from the HTML produced at that endpoint when no Accept header is sent; while no compliant OpenID 2.0 RP should see it, it is a little confusing to humans like me.

    (As a side note, I assume by the fact that you've managed to comment with your live-int.com identifer that LiveJournal has upgraded their RP to support OpenID 2.0, which is good news. My blog only supporting 1.1 was a bit embarassing. ;))
