"Get an OpenID" page & buttons
On the "Get an OpenID" page (http://openid.net/get-an-openid/) you mention for example 'Look for the "Sign in with a Google Account" button'.
Isn't that a bit irritating for new users, if they get told to look for such a button but the site with the OpenID form doesn't provide such a button? Wouldn't it be better to mention the url, too?

@Chris Messina I don't think it is much more difficult than remembering www.google.com, which is an address I rarely have to look up. But I think you are missing an important point. When people don't find this URL on your site, they keep looking for it, and find lots of other misleading info, and eventually give up.

Yep. The problem is that the Google OpenID URL is SUPER-unfriendly (https://www.google.com/accounts/o8/id). So even though we COULD tell people to use that, virtually no one would remember it. We're hoping to get Google to change it, so we also wouldn't want to spread information that changes later...
