 There are a few limitations of our OpenID support. There are a few limitations of our OpenID support.
  
-  * Yahoo! OpenIDs do not work.  This is because Yahoo myopically chose to support only OpenID 2.0, without allowing backwards compatibility for OpenID 1.1.   Many sites, including those powered by Citadel, implement only OpenID 1.1 because it is much more simple and straightforward.  Unfortunately, until Yahoo corrects this limitation, you will not be able to log in to any Citadel sites using a Yahoo OpenID.  It is recommended that you choose a provider that supports both versions of the technology+  * Citadel uses OpenID 2.0 protocol.  If your OpenID provider only supports OpenID 1.1 (which is now extremely rare) you will not be able to use it with Citadel. 
-  * "i-names" do not work, either.  This should be no surprise since support for i-names is a feature of OpenID 2.0.  We do not expect this to be a problem for the time being, though, because almost no one is interested in i-names.  Nearly all of the takeup of OpenID to date has been using URL-based ID's.+  * "i-names" do not work, either.  We do not expect this to be a problem for the time being, though, because almost no one is interested in i-names.  Nearly all of the takeup of OpenID to date has been using URL-based ID's.
