Don Gillespie found the following bug in safari which I reproduced in the overnight build from April 24/25:
I'm recommending that this be marked as a 'bug' in Safari as it is clear that the page can be rendered properly; as FireFox does.
David, do you have exact steps to reproduce? Do you have any haxies, APEs or Input Managers installed with your Safari? If so, please disable them and try viewing the page again.
Could you also post a URL to where this note by Don Gillespie is published?

then scroll down to the Government & Education bit.
My experience was that the css on the left side of the page didn't quite display correctly, though rolling over it does display correctly.

Thanks! Apparently Google hadn't indexed this yet when I searched. :)

I don't see any anomalies; please provide screenshots.
Considering the page was designed for IE 6 (per the outlying content to the right of the main content--in both Firefox and Safari/WebKit), I'd say the page works very well in WebKit nightlies!

Screen shot of error in css display
On my machine, this looks like a slight difference in how menu items are aligned. Apparently, this depends on the fonts chosen in Safari preferences.

I don't see fonts clipped like this, either! David, do you have Verdana installed? The Web Inspector says the computed "font-family" style is "verdana".

Screen shot of search button misplaced
I did notice that the search button is obviously misplaced, although Firefox has the same issue. Probably an MSIE 6 specific issue.
I do not have veranda installed.

Uh-oh, that looks fine in both Safari and Firefox here :)
I just checked the original page using 6/8/07 build. Looks OK now.
