Hi Kingsley, I watched your video that shows you creating a certificate
for Internet Explorer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzqHVUb3qrw
Looking at that I can only agree with Manu Sporny that this is geeky.
code at http://webid.myxwiki.org/
Perhaps someone with Internet Explorer can make a screen cast of creating a certificate there (no need to do the account creation bit).
If there are issues we need to try to find out how we can reduce them there.
