Following detection of bugs in the Acid2 test by Dave Hyatt, the Web Standards Project released version 1.1 of the Acid2 test.

Now, Dave Hyatt has finsihed fixing Safari so that it complies the standards used in the Acid2 test and correctly renders the Acid2 test. Apart from a 1 pixel glitch around the nose (possibly caused by anti-aliasing) his work is complete.

Because Safari is based on KHTML rendering engine the fixes that Dave Hyatt has made should also go some way to fixing other KHTML based browsers (such as Konquerer). Unfortunately there aren’t any working ports of the KHTML engine to the Windows platform that I know of.
