safari's engine originally tried to mimic all quirks from IE 4, 5 and 
5.5 as well as NS 4.7x. So much so, that I still use kde's konqueror
to browse old IE-only sites: it's the only browser I have that displays
those pages reasonably. But it is steadily moving towards standards 
(which actually makes it less usable for me), so newer version may
be better.

No problem.
