Common Access Card support is a feature of the networking layer, not  
the browser engine. WebKit doesn't itself have a networking layer.

Different ports connect to the appropriate networking layer on each  
platform. So the question of whether Common Access Cards are supported  
are independent for Mac OS X, Windows, and AIR.

To make it clear that you'd like this feature for Windows, a bug  
report at <http://bugreport.apple.com> would be welcome.

I don't know what the answer is for AIR; I'm not sure what the best  
way to contact Adobe about this is.
