CSS display when using AJAX (Unique to Safari)

FILE #1: In a very full page of HTML, I have a few DIVs that are hidden by CSS. Various Javascripts cause the DIVs to appear and dissapear on specific events (click, mouseover, etc). Unfortunately, the data displayed on this page changes often.

"No problem," I said. I will just create:
FILE #2: An Ajax script, designed output File #1 every 30 seconds (to make sure the user always sees the latest data).

The Javascript and CSS work fine, when you are viewing File #1. But, when you are viewing File #2, the DIVs in question are always showing (ignoring any CSS and/or JavaScirpt).

This issue is unique to Safari. No issues in IE, FF, O, or Ch.

Does Safari handle something differently that might cause this?

Because both Chrome and Safari use the same rendering engine, the problem is most likely that the Safari JavaScript engine accesses the DOM object differently.
