I apologize, my last run in with starcom was 2 years ago and they didn't have the support they have now.

StartSSL shows up just dandy in Chrome, IE, Firefox, and Safari. Can't
vouch for Opera since I don't use it, but other than those top five,
not sure what other "major browser" you need to support in.

They DO offer 2048 bit for $60 bucks, not $200.  But if you're not
accepting credit card or storing passwords, WHY would you need 2048
bit?

And supporting GoDaddy is like Arsenal. Might as well just offer up
your social security as plain text to the world in all of your emails
and call it good.

Price notwithstanding, it still comes down to who is going to be the
go-to person on Code4Lib's side which is why this was never resolved.
