 Wordpress should be cognizant of whether https was used to access the page
 and use https to access content under its control to minimize mixed
 content warnings in browsers.

 1. Configure Internet Explorer 8 with default settings.
 2. Load https://gurganus.name/brant.
 3. Choose "Yes" about only showing the secure content.

 Actual result: You receive both a degraded user experience as well as a
 usually unnecessary warning.

 Expected result: The URLs to content under Wordpress control such as the
 stylesheet are switched to https so that secured and non-secured content
 is not mixed.

 It's understandable that Wordpress can't do anything about content not
 under its control, but images and stylesheets are under its control
 generally so they should be loaded over https if the page was loaded over
