[thelist] Security issues - HTTP-HTTPS

Hello all

If I had a page on a non-secure server that had a form on it, which
submitted to a secure server, would the form data be encypted and secure?

I suppose this depends on how HTTPS works - whether the browser negotiates
the security before or after sending the page request, and whether it
renegotiates the security for every request or does it once per session.
