Openid problem with delegation

I have openid from . The open id url is I use delegation and use as the open id url. But something going wrong today. I am not able to login to few of my regular services like

But I am able to login to some other services like
productwiki, and few self hosted wordpress blogs.

When I try to login to first set of sites. It does not even take me to login page. The error usually I get is timeout or open idserver does not exist. Which means the consumer is failing to read the delegation info. Is anybody facing the same problem?

Example error from Jyte ” Connection timed out attempting to contact your OpenID server”
There are more updates below:

Update1: Since morning it was not working. Strangely it started working now. Any idea?
Update2: Logged off and tried to login to Jyte again. Now I am not able to. Its very strange.
Update3: I got replies from all (jyte,ma.gnolia,claimid). It was problem with my header setting. One of the setting earlier as said by myopenid help section was
<meta http-equiv="X-XRDS-Location"
content="" />
Changed now to
<meta http-equiv="X-XRDS-Location" content="">

Thanks to Brain from Jainrain for this help. Probaly they need to update that help section.
Update4 [Thursday, June 14, 2007 at 05:42:05 GMT]: No its something beyond that. As usual the new solution works with live journal and doesnot always work with other sites like Jyte or ma.gnolia.
Update5: Sometime in the after noon I was able to login. But now I am not able to. But I am still able to login to livejournal and wikitravel. Is it because they have a different type of implementation?

Updare8 [Thursday, June 14, 2007 at 11:00:05 GMT]: A little debugging tells me that its actually problem with the wordpress but the problem with my Theme. When I use the default theme it works well. But when I use SouthRiver theme. It does not work. So I will continue taking that as my starting point.

Updare7[Thursday, June 14, 2007 at 13:00:05 GMT]:I did some debugging. Now I am almost confirmed that SouthRiver theme is responsible for it. But I love this theme. I am keeping it. I need to run this theme locally on my laptop to see what exactly is wrong

    I have another new issue altogether. I am able to comment on sites using my open id. However, instead of displaying my name, it shows up as ‘blog’ if i enter my open id url as “”. Similarly, it displays as ‘’ if the open id url is entered as

    Any idea on how to over come this and to display my name as just ‘Mohan’ instead of ‘blog’ or ‘’?
