Subject
[Lsid-developer] LSID Firefox extension 0.2






I've released a new version of the Firefox LSID extension. It's still
a bit rough, so isn't on the "official" Mozdev extension site yet.
Instead, it is on my page http://darwin.zoology.gla.ac.uk/~rpage/lsid
(it is version 0.2).

Version 0.2 uses a server here at Glasgow to resolve the LSID, and
displays the resulting metadata using a XSLT style sheet. Any LSIDs
in the metadata  become clickable using the "lsidres" protocol. I
think this gives a nicer experience than simply bouncing you to the
Biopathways web resolver.

Some LSIDs that work well are:

lsidres:urn:lsid:limnology.wisc.edu:category:chem

lsidres:urn:lsid:ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.lsid.biopathways.org:pubmed:12441807


There are a few rough edges (the XSLT style sheet won't win any
prizes for elegance), but I thought it might be of interest.

Regards

Rod
