So far, no issues there.  Is there a way that self-signing a certificate and installing it makes make my server software any more or less validated?

Irregardless of my specific use case, the point is that 3/4 relevant (in my industry) browsers are following the spec.  There is a reason we have web specifications.  Not following the specification ends up in odd cases like this where we either have to write more code to accomadate the one browser that doesn't follow the other 3, or simply tell customers we don't support the browser.
