Yes, though it is more accurate to say that Chrome and Safari both run  
off the same engine.  (i.e. they are siblings, rather than Chrome  
being a "descendant" of Safari.)  In theory, the rendering should be  
the same between them. Perhaps they're using a slightly different  
version of the engine?  Does anyone have an older version of Safari  
they could test for the same issue?
