Indeed. The style-sheet links all had http:// urls in them. Chromium
doesn't like non https in a https page. I replaced them by path
references which seems to do the job. You might need to do a
shift-reload to flush the cache

Very educational, thanks! I have addressed some issues (not the CA),
though for the majority apache has to be upgraded to 2.3+ which is still
not yet available in FreeBSD ports :(

Ha, but maybe only 99.99% for the DNS aware Net::DNS audience :)
