but does all the IE versions (let's say since version 5) support wildcard in
the name?
I'm asking this because we were asked to host some sites that include online
store, and I think that most users when they see warning goes with the
default (which is not to continue display the page). 
btw, after discussing it with my boss, we decided to buy certificate from
versign. will this change the picture?
