Safari table width problem

P: n/a
I'm working on a site and ran into a little trouble with Safari.

Here are the relevant links:

page: http://www.joshrenaud.com/fredbear/contact.html
css: http://www.joshrenaud.com/fredbear/s...eets/style.css

(both have successfully passed the relevant validators)

The problem is that the Feedback table breaks out of the containing div. I
don't specify a width for the table, but it seems to default to 100% of the
parent div. But when I apply left and right margins, instead of the table
shrinking, it keeps this 100% width and moves to the right, extending beyond
the border of the containing div.

I have also tested this page in NN7 and IE5.1 on the Mac, and neither does
this behavior. In both of those browsers, the table remains within the
containing div, with a 25px margin on the left and right. This is what I
want to see in Safari.

Can anyone help me understand (1) why Safari behaves the way it does and (2)
how to get my page to look in Safari as it does in the other browsers?

Thanks!

No problems in Safari 1.1.1.
