Safari is not happy with the combination of relative positioning and
top/left offset, it is incorrectly calculating the height of body
(reminds me of a similar bug with NN4.....:-) IE Mac is even more
unhappy with all that; elements jump around out of place..
As Ingo noted, loosening the relative positioning, esp for your main
content area, and using margins (top/left) should fix the main problem
in Safari, and some of the problems in IE mac (review the pages linked
below in my sig about that browser , and most problems there should be
fixed as well.)
