This is neat.  I didn't realize the IETF was using jabber for chats.

I'm using Pidgin because empathy doesn't support O-T-R.
I have a Mac friend who uses O-T-R when talking to me.

If I right click on Pidgin in my Notification Area,
I get the option, "Join Chat..."

A Window pops up, saying "Join a Chat" with
Account...I select one of my Jabber accounts,
such as my Google jabber account.
The Window expands to the following:
Account rsewill at gmail.com/pidgin...
Handle: rsewill

I enter hallway for the room and jabber.ietf.org for the server getting
Account rsewill at gmail.com/pidgin...
Room: hallway
Server: jabber.ietf.org
Handle: rsewill
I click Join and I am in hallway chat room at jabber.ietf.org.

The following URL describes how to set up google talk chat in Pidgin:

I learn something new every day.
