The version of WebKit used by Safari 5.0.3 is rather antiquated at this
point.  Using the latest WebKit nightly build, or Chrome 10.0.648.45
dev (which has a significantly newer version of WebKit), I get #ff0000 and
rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.0) on the first test and #ff0000 / #ff0000 on the second.
 Presumably at some point Apple will release a new version of Safari that
matches the behavior nightlies currently have.
