Facebook's OpenID Support: Much Improved!

I decided to give linking my Facebook account to my OpenID delegate page another go last night.

Lo and behold, it still didn't work. But this time, I got a useful error message!

After some Googling and reading, I finally figured out that I needed to add the following two lines to the source of my delegate page. Now I have a delegate page that works with OpenID 1.1 and OpenID 2.0.

Once I got that, I was able to link Facebook to my MyOpenID account. The
weird logging in and out issues I reported a couple of weeks ago also
seem to be resolved.
