I am using Geotrust for all my domains (and SANS domains) for about two
years now. Not a single compliant about incompatibilities.

Another cheap SSL source is instantssl.com. They start at $50/year. I
used one of their for a semi-internal site and it worked ok. Haven't had
much experience otherwise.

Never used the Verisign payment gateway. But I agree that it can be a
pain to switch.
