What causes the HTML page for the service that embeds the shim and contains
the intent tag to be loaded?

The shim that is embedded in the page reads the HTML in the head element
looking for the intent tag.  Once it finds one it parses the relevant data
out of it and passes the registration information via an iframe to
webintents.org where it is stored locally in the localStorage.
