I dont think its a good idea.About 5 months ago i used two order forms,A secure CC form and a secure Check form.After i got emails about people wanting other ordering options, i made two more forms that werent secure and got a lot more sales.I dont have any stats for you but i think your order form should be secure,with the option to use a non-secure form.

>(am just realizing that some of my carefully crafted links are showing because some of the pages on my menu are not displaying on NS4 'because they have links to unsecure sources, which will not be shown' ACK!!!!

Do you use a style sheet?or java?My sites styles sheet doesnt show up on netscape either but the links still work.tell me the url to your site,ill take a look for ya :)
