Summary: Jetty6: Connecting to SSL server using "http" shows garbage

Initial Comment:
If you attempt to connect to a https port using "http", garbage characters are displayed in the browser (using IE).  I am assuming this is part of the SSL handshake.  There really should be some sort of error page, and ideally, the possibility of providing a link or redirect to the correct address using "https".

This is nothing to do with Jetty, and Jetty cannot do what you suggest,
since Jetty never even gets to know that there has been a failed attempt to
establish an SSL session. Telling the browser to use HTTP to connect to an
HTTPS port can never work. The fault, and only cure, is in the design of
the web page - the client and server protocols *must* match.
