Been using them for 2 years without anyone obviously noticing?

I will have to double check now, but I thought they were chain signed by
a big upstream name?  You do need to add the intermediate cert, and if
you forget that then probably nothing will accept your cert?

I am definitely not the largest shop in the world though... I suspect
the only customers using SSL will be those using clients which default
to it being on, ie OSX, newer thunderbird and I think newer Outlook?
