My browser displays a message about an 'expired certificate'. What
A. It's not that our secure certificate has expired; it is the 'root
certificate' in your browser that has expired. To enable secure
Internet transactions, we use a secure site certificate issued by
Thawte Consulting. Most modern browsers recognize Thawte certificates,
but with some older browsers, particularly up to version 3 of Internet
Explorer or Netscape Navigator, you may experience a problem (newer
versions should have no problems). If you are experiencing these
problems, for your protection, you should update your browser, or
try using our non-secure manual order
