Your SSL tester at  SSL Server Test (Powered by Qualys SSL Labs)   has a typo in the tooltip reference notes. Note the superscripts below, they should actually point one value higher because someone added a new note it appears.


IE 6 / XP   No FS 1   No SNI 2Protocol mismatch (not simulated)
(1) Certificate trust is not checked in handshake simulation, we only perform TLS handshake.
(2) Clients that do not support Forward Secrecy (FS) are excluded when determining support for it.
(3) No support for virtual SSL hosting (SNI). Connects to the default site if the server uses SNI.
(4) Only first connection attempt simulated. Browsers sometimes retry with a lower protocol version.
(R) Denotes a reference browser or client, with which we expect better effective security.
(All) We use defaults, but some platforms do not use their best protocols and features (e.g., Java 6 & 7, older IE).
