This gives me with Netsurf 29 Jan 2005 16:30 the following error :
Sorry, NetSurf was unable to display this page

This page is reachable with Oregano and Fresco wothout error.
Is it a failure of Netsurf or in the CSS of the page?
Neither. It may be a failure of Oregano and Fresco though.
The site's SSL certificate was issued by plesk which is not within
NetSurf's set of trusted Certificate Authorities . NetSurf cannot
authenticate the certificate. Therefore it cannot guarantee that you
are communicating with who you think you are so errs on the side of
caution and rejects it the certificate and the connection.
Oregano and Fresco haven't quite got the "Don't talk to strangers"
advice. Opera and Firefox will warn you that about the certificate and
allow you to view it and then accept it just this time, for always or
never. NetSurf goes with "Just say no" unless you change the line:
ssl_verify_certificates:1 to 0.
in Choices:WWW.NetSurf.Choices. Then, NetSurf will not check any SSL
certificates for any sites which is, to say the least, potentially
If you are happy with viewing the stats in Oregano or Fresco, do so
rather than compromising NetSurf.
For the verify to fail, the certificate could be incomplete/damaged,
the issuing Certificate Authority could be unrecognized (as here) or
the site could be pretending to be another one.
