>From my reading of this information, Netscape has only been granted
export to _banks_ worldwide, not customers in general. This makes it
more secure for U.S. citizens to deal with banks in foreign countries
but does nothing for customers in foreign countries to deal more
securely with companies or individuals in the U.S.
