Safari rendering problem

I have recently redesigned and relaunched my site at <snip>. I have since had queries that it does not render correctly on Safari since:

(a) the text overflows; and
(b) the title is not displayed on the left as it should.

I have no experience with Safari as I am not familiar with Macs and had sought to make the site compatible to Firefox and IE. I am guessing it is the overflow div commands but am not at all sure.

Do you know how I can fix this error (I hope it can be repaired!). A good proportion of my audience use Safari (based on the emails I have received) Any starters would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your help and I look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld 1000words!

Personal URLs aren’t allowed in posts here, but if you can post a testcase we’d be happy to help. You could also try using one of the Safari screen capture sites around (like browsercam or icapture).

Can you supply the CSS (if/when your URL gets yanked due to T.O.S., the folks here will have nothing to go on)? In the 2.0.4 release, I am indeed seeing the two problems you've pointed out. Are you floating that text div?

Thank you for your responses so far.

We could use [nightstand.org...] as a test case if this is not a personal url.

You are correct with the float div - [quirksmode.org...]

Is there a suggested work around?
