the IntExp 7 (under WinXP) automatically converts *.crt (as visible in the
status bar at the bottom of the browser)
to files with *.cer extension.
Are there any differences between *.cer and *.crt certificates?
Re: Are *.cer = *.crt certificates? Why auto-conversion when downloading from cacert.org?

I'm not sure how you are downloading. There are a number of
different formats for X.509 certificates. Most likely the ".crt"
file uses the PEM format and the ".cer" uses the DER format. The PEM
format is just a base64 encoding of the DER format (so that it has
only ASCII characters).
