COL and COLGROUP get captured by CAPTION in Safari

The correct use of the CAPTION element –immediately after the TABLE start tag– causes COL and COLGROUP to become unusable as CSS selectors in the current version of Safari (2.0.3/version 417.9.2).

A workaround is to place the CAPTION after the COL/COLGROUP tags, but this makes the code invalid.

The same problem can be seen in the latest Konqueror (3.5.1).
But it works correctly in current nightly builds of WebKit (using the 2006-03-28 build).
