The lsid extension enables resolution of lsidres URIs. The lsidres protocol is used by IBM's LaunchPad for Life Sciencer Identifiers (LSIDs). At present, LauchPad is only available for Internet Explorer 6 running on Windows. This extension is a first step towards adding support for this protocol to other browsers.
Version 0.1 simply redirects the browser to the BioPathways Consortium's LSID resolver, which resolves the LSID.
Version 0.2 redirects to a Perl script on a machine at Glasgow that does the resolution and displays the metadata using an XSL transformation.
Version 0.3 works with Firefox 1.5 (just needed to tweak the file install.rdf).
Version 0.4 works with Firefox 1.5.x (just needed to tweak the file install.rdf)(again...).
A more sophisticated approach would be for the extension to do the resolution itself (perhaps using IBM's Java client source code as a starting point), but this is for the future.
