I have recently developed this source code. I have now got around to checking it for cross-browser compatibility. I have used www.browsercam.com and it produced the following view (http://www.gordondent.co.uk/compat/safari_view.jpg) for the following page:
http://www.gordondent.co.uk/fpp/about/?page=staff&person=alison

Basically the side image does not appear in Safari and I do not understand why. It is a PNG file that is approximately 250Kb in size. I am thinking it is something to do with the size of the image as the text header saying Alison Brazier is also a PNG.

Please can someone give me some pointers. I can't really use a jpg or gif as I need the high quality transparency that PNG-24 offers.

I believe the z-index: -1; is making Safari place the picture behind the background.  Remove that from #contentB #sideImage  in the style_a.css style sheet file.
#contentB #sideImage {
	position: absolute;
	top: 51px;
	left: 0;
	width: 97.775%;
	height: 296px;
	z-index: -1;
}
