If you take a look at the link in question, they are touting it as
being a much faster browser ("up to two times faster than IE").

Wow. Whoever developed that page/subsite has some things to learn. I
had to type that quote out because the text in question was in an
image. A *background* image at that, so not even any alt text. Yeesh!


Actually, it's text, with an image replacement (not a bad thing to do)

The code used:

<p>Experience the web, Apple style, with Safari: the fastest,
easiest-to-use web browser in the world. With its simple, elegant
interface, Safari gets out of your way and lets you enjoy the web - up
to 2 times faster than Internet Explorer.</p>

#main #hero div.intro {index.css (line 11)
no-repeat scroll 0%;

Essentially, the whole section is just text, then the CSS hides the text
(by moving it WAY to the left (-9999px))

This way, search engines can still read the text, and people who don't
have CSS/Image browsers can read the content as well.
