All,

Our id.myopenlink.net service includes an OpenID+WebID proxy that you 
can use via the  URL pattern:
http://id.myopenlink.net/openid-proxy/id.vsp?w={WebID}

Example:
http://id.myopenlink.net/openid-proxy/id.vsp?w=http://id.myopenlink.net/dataspace/person/KingsleyUyiIdehen 


You can test this pattern with any existing OpenID instance and simply 
enjoy the benefit of not having to enter your user name and password 
since redirection to WebID handles that, leaving you to simply present 
an X.509 cert when challenged for identity authentication by OpenID 
services.

As simple example is available at:

1. 
http://kingsley.idehen.net/MediaWiki/index.php?title=Special:VOILogin&type=signup 
-- for signup
2. http://kingsley.idehen.net/MediaWiki/?title=Special:VOILogin -- 
authentication .

You should be able to do the same, using the same URL pattern when using 
other OpenID services such as: StackOverflow, Identi.ca, Yahoo! etc..
