Safari unable to properly render a preLoadPage

I am using a waitPreLoadPage script that displays a "Loading ...
Please wait" splash screen while the page is loading. See:
< http://www.quantumcrypto.de/ >

Safari renders everything, but the content renders one page down from
the splash content. Once the full content has been rendered I can
scroll to it, but the splash page remains at the top (not layered
over) the main list display.

IE and firefox correctly replace the splash screen with the real
content of the page once the page is fully loaded.

Web page with the issue: http://www.quantumcrypto.de/
Script available at: http://rainbow.arch.scriptmania.com/...load_wait.html

Any thoughts why the script doesn't work in Safari?

Stop using splash screens. Make your page so reasonable that it loads in a
decent time.

No idea, but it surely isn't an HTML matter if it's about scripting.

Can you scroll to all of it, or does it start with the entries half-way
down (08/17/2007 or so)? If the latter then it is layered over it.
That's what I see in Konqueror with scripting disabled.
IE and firefox correctly replace the splash screen with the real
content of the page once the page is fully loaded.

It works in Konqueror, and is a very simple script. Are you sure
JavaScript isn't disabled in the instance of Safari you're testing it
with?

Thank you all. I have resolved the issue. The webpage loads fine now.
