selector progress

I am making good progress with the selector that supports Information Cards and OpenID (Cards). Maybe it will support username/password too.

Please notice the purple-i in the urlbar left of the site identity icon. Clicking it starts the selector which lets you login using your e.g. OpenID (Card). It "works" with the test page and it nearly works with Andrew Anortt's page. Markus Sabadello's testpage needs a little more work. The next step is to remember the cards used and display that/them in the urlbar.

I would like to mention that "login" or "connect" (to a site) is not enough. I think that attributes or claims are more important than login.

Sometime not too far in the future we should agree on a standard for this. I prefer the XRDS way to conway the RP's requirements to the selector and we can inline it into the HTML code if a download of the XRDS is not desirable...
