That doesn't happen in IE5.5/win, so I can't help there.

An IE border bug. It's triggered by making that element 'relative'.
Since there seems no reason to do that, try removing it.

It's due to using 'bottom' to position it. You need to assign
a 'width' to the container to make it work in IE. See this demo:
IE5/mac thinks the container is 0px high when placing AP boxes.
Oddly, Op6 is almost right. (?)

Yup. Safari does have bugs, but not these. Moz is nearly bug-free.
