The CSS box model and 'fixed' positioning in Safari both seem faulty as well
as form support in XHTML. It's probably snagging on the closing slash in the
<input /> tags. For now, I'd rather stick with Mozilla or IE5 on Mac.
Chimera is another cool Cocoa browser, but it's <1.0 and buggy as well.

When is MacIE6 coming out? Anybody know?
