Safari 1.2 supports the outline-offset property.  It makes no attempt 
to limit the outline to be fully visible on the viewport, so if you do 
use outline-offset to push the outline further from the bounding 
region, you do risk making the outline unviewable.  I assume this sort 
of decision-making is left up to the UA.
