I've got email into the IT staff of both users, so hopefully I'll find
out if it really is just an old version of IE.  If they reply.

But, it's hard to imagine that there's not more to this.  It's hard
for me to believe that these users have never posted a form before in
SSL mode.  It's not like I'm doing anything that complex in these
forms.  Very odd.
