Trusted Root CAs for Safari?

I've posted a similar question in Browsers, but noone there was able to help.

How can I find out which SSL certificates are by default accepted in Safari?

I'm considering changing our company's SSL certifier from Verisign to someone else (anyone else gah!) but I first want to check that main browsers will all recognise the new certificates with no reconfiguring needed.  This is fine for IE and Navigator, but I wanted to check for Mac browsers - Safari in particular.

Can anyone here tell me how to check what trusted root certificate authorities Safari has?

I have run keychain access, but all I can see are the saved passwords.  Someone else suggested Edit-BuiltIn Certificates from Safari.  I can only assume that this is a joke, or else I have a different version of Safari,  because I see no such menu option.

Thank you

They all do. A certificate isn't actually installed into Safari. It's installed into the Keychain which is referenced by Safari. A certificate is a certificate is a certificate and it doesn't matter who authorized it. The only thing to consider when choosing a certificate authority is "are they well known?" Some sites will only accept certificates from well known certificate authorities.
