I would like to generate my own SSL certificates.  This will be used for testing internal IIS and WCF based applications.  While i can create a self-signed certificate, that is not an accurate test for what our user will experience when installing our software in public and adding a production ssl certificate.  

My question is: Will the Microsoft 2003 Standalone CA allow me to create certificates that will be trusted by all browsers??

If the answer is yes, then do I need to update the root certificate that is used by my Standalone CA?

If the answer is yes, how do I do that?  

Im guessing that I get a certificate from a VeriSign and then install it in my CA.  Then the certificates that I generate will be “trusted”since,  people who goto my website will see that the certificate was generated by my company and VeriSign trusts me.
