This doesn't exactly inspire confidence

If things go well in the next week or so, I'll be submitting a paper to a conference in a field very different from my own. Somehow the progression makes sense to me, hopefully others agree.

Today I decided to check out the submission process, which is run by Microsoft. Not only do both Firefox and Safari complain about the SSL certificate (unknown certification authority), but the site is full of overlapping text and boxes (as shown in Firefox):

Is this stuff still so hard? Are the folks at MS not permitted to test against Firefox?
