[thelist] Alternative CA's

We are looking for a CA to issue us SSL certificates for several servers. We
had a bad experience with Verisign and also feel that their products are
overpriced. I was about to go with Thawte until I discovered that they had
been bought out by Verisign. So my question to the group is, what are the
alternatives to Verisign/Thawte and is there a downside to going with a
lesser-known CA? Since we are not doing commerce, I don't think it is
important to us that the end-user has heard of our CA, just that it will be
trusted by most browsers. Any help would be much appreciated.
