How Standard is "https:"?

We are using "https:" for our download page
https://www.cypherpunks.to/erights/download.html so that people will get
it, and the downloads themselves, over what I assume to be an SSL
connection. However, "https:" isn't one of the URL protocol handlers built
into java, and is therefore also currently missing from E. How
embarrassing -- we only support the insecure one!
Also, various other tools seem not to recognize it. For example, when I
ask Dreamweaver to check for broken links in the erights site, it thinks
the links to the download page are badly formed. OTOH, Eudora seems happy
with them. So, how standard is "https:"? What's Lynx do?
Btw, speaking of SSL, would someone care to recommend a good C or C++ SSL
library for production use? Since my question doesn't really belong on
this list, please respond to me privately. It's for a friend. Thanks, and
sorry for the spam.
