I can't figure out why my layout is messed up on a Mac in Safari and Firefox. The CSS positioning of the footer isn't working properly. It looks fine on my PC in Firefox and IE. It also looks fine in Netscape on both Mac and PC. I must be missing something...

Here is the link: http://www.lebrushartistry.com/lebrush_artistry.php

Pasting the CSS code below.
Attaching am image of how the page should look.
#footer { 
	position: relative;
	display: block;
	background-image: url(../images/bg_footer.gif);
	width: 771px;
	height: 160px;
	clear: both;
	color: #FFFFFF;
}
 
a.footer_nav
{
	font-size: 8pt;
	color: #FFFFFF;
	font-weight: normal;
	text-decoration: none;
	position: relative;
	padding-left: 10px;
	padding-right: 10px;
	top: 8px;
}
 
a.footer_nav:hover
{
	text-decoration: underline;
}
 
a.footer_link
{
	font-size: 8pt;
	color: #FFFFFF;
	font-weight: normal;
	text-decoration: underline;
}
 
a.footer_link:hover
{
	color: #35775e;	
	text-decoration: underline;
}
 
.info_ttl {
	position: relative;
	top: -5px;
	left: 440px;
	width: 101px;
	float: left;
}

I see you've sorted it, the problem was the absolute positioning should have been relative.
