Hi Richard,

I've done the test for Safari 2.0.1 on Mac OS X V10.4.2
Safari is OK with RTL! (shame on the others)

For the four tests (dir=rtl in the body, html or head elements, and then 
only in the button element)

    * Safari, does not reverse the order of graphic elements in the
      dialog boxes.
    * Safari display the message in RTL!  The text W3C appears at the
      right of the Arabic text.
      (نشاط التدويل، W3C)
    * The scroll bar is at the right of the window.

The column for Safari 2.0.1 on Mac OS X V10.4.2 should then be 
green-light  :-).

Please find here ( the 
complete answer with images.
