We proudly present ...

Well, it's not very much yet to present, but I think it is useful  
nevertheless. At

you'll find
  - YADIS capability description example files
  - the XML schemas for XRD(S),
  - scripts that help test URLs for their YADIS conformance.

You can enter a URL to a capability description file, and test  
whether the file conforms to the document specification as we hashed  
it out last Thursday. And, even better, you can enter a URL and  
"probe" it for which YADIS capability discovery methods it supports,  
and what capabilities it announces.

To try out the latter, you can go directly to:

and enter my URLs as example:

* http://netmesh.info/jernst  (which uses the link-in-HTML-head method)
* http://mylid.net/jernst   (which uses the X-YADIS-Location HTTP  

All of this is subject to change, of course, as the YADIS spec  
progresses towards V1.0 ...

P.S. If you have a YADIS implementation on-line somewhere, I'd really  
like to know about it to make sure the tests are accurate.
