Safari does have some quirks, not the least of which is somehow not 
working with signing up with e-bay to be a seller, which involves 
supplying a credit card number.  The FAQ for e-bay actually says that 
Safari on Macs with OS 10 doesn't work for that process.

It strikes me as really strange that a quirk like this is not fixed 
by Safari since it would probably cause problems for a large number 
of users. It also raises the question of whether Safari is dependable 
at all with secure credit card transactions.   Hmmm.

By the way, your site looks fine in Netscape 4.7, something most web 
designers consider so passe as not to be worth bothering with.
