Interesting.  I don't see any warnings from Firefox 3.6.8 nor do I get any  
warnings with Opera 10.61 b3476 or Chrome 5.0.375.125

No, the website's owners don't have extended validation (not a big deal  
for such a site) but none of my browsers reports a part-encrypted web page  
- and I know that Opera in particular is hot on that.

I can't see how you got a red exclam.
