Text appearing overtop image which is set to float:left in Safari browser only

See attached screenshot, my client is seeing <h1> content overtop of an image which is set to float:left. This appears to happen ONLY in my client's Safari browser on a MacBook Pro. I also have Safari on a MacBook Pro, I cannot duplicate this problem… in that browser, or five others (Windows and Macintosh).

I've gone over the HTML and CSS extensively… I cannot see anything wrong with it! I tried inspecting it with Developer Tools, everything looks fine. I would really appreciate if anyone could help shed some light on this. Why one particular browser?

Thank you!

HTML:

<div id="content3bg">
	<div id="content3wrap" class="clearfix">
		<ul id="menu3">
			<li>HAMS</li>
			<li><a href="http://bbdesign.com/berksfoods.com/recipes-hams.htm">Featured Recipes</a></li>
		</ul>
		<div class="content3div">
			<div class="recipeblock clearfix">
				<img src="img/ph_recipes-hams-0001.jpg" alt="Pineapple-Ginger-Lime Ham" />
				<h1>Pineapple-Ginger-Lime Ham</h1>
				<p>Lorem ipsum master walkie havenport.</p>
				<div class="recipebottom">

...

					<table>
						<tr>
							<th>PREP</th>
							<th>COOK</th>
							<th>READY IN</th>
						</tr>
						<tr>
							<td>10min</td>
							<td>30min</td>
							<td>40min</td>
						</tr>
					</table>
				</div>
			</div>

...

		</div>
	</div>
</div>

Change your H1 margin to have a left margin of 360px

That fixed it. I was concerned that it would add extra margin on all the other browsers, but that didn't happen. I still understand what was wrong with my code, but at least this is a workaround. Thanks!
