Current OpenID demo/test page? (+ problem)

I figured out what was wrong.

You're checking for 'is_valid', which is the response from a
'check_authentication' request. You won't get an 'is_valid' response when
you are using 'checkid_setup'.  (which is what you were sending) You will
need test for the response paramaters of 'checkid_setup'.
