public site up for a day or two, to demo logon using a webid to a windows azure webapp.

I made a webid profile in turtle, and hosted it (finally) in a trivial windows website build, then hosted in Azure cloud. I just borrowed the typical About verb in MVC for the home page controller. http://idweb.cloudapp.net/Home/About#me. I then made a second website, http://idweb.cloudapp.net:8080/ that uses the OpenLink IDP (using 2 bridges, Azure STS and OpenLink openid/webid proxy). It features a home realm selector rather similar to that Melvin showed. Using my own webid and cert made using microsoft windows bearing a single SAN URI, it not only works agains all three test sites (FOAFSSL, FCNS, ODS), it also works via the openid proxy. It should do, being so simple (for which we should give Henry some praise, occasionally, for staying on course). One knows that the client certs part works, when ODS IDP dialogs say something like (for me). WebID: http://idweb.cloudapp.net/Home/About#me 
OpenID Identity: http://id.myopenlink.net/openid-proxy/id.vsp?w=http://idweb.cloudapp.net/Home/About%23me I do occasionally see Aazure/ODS interworking issues, that folks will no doubt fix as customer starting paying... None of the code is mine. I just hooked things together... All the code is either Microsoft sample code for their websso cloud endpoints and repling party demo sites, or Kingsley's team's work on the IDP side. Its largely identical to the kind of site that webmasters now using webmatrix (a low end website builder, for the windows community) are given, so one can easily talk to facebook, and openid enabled IDPs like Yahoo, Google (and now webid). I dont know its its required, but I have an IDP account at ODS, that is also webid enabled. The IDP allowed me to also registered my third-party cert, and bind it to the IDP account. This MAY be required (for the openid proxy to work). Im not sure. Im just happy I could make it work by myself, without an OpenLink engineer doing anything for me! Now, this costs 4c an hour to run. So, I can afford it for a a day or two (since that fits the kinds of costs we have to get things down to, to turn  a profit in the IT business of realty. Folks are unlike to pay more than 10-20c a month per user for webid, since they only paid a bit more for an RSA securid card with full power 2 factor assurances, and a major brand in support).
