css('z-index') returns incorrect value in Safari

Safari 3 Mac. When an element has its z-index set in an external stylesheet or in <style> tags, .css('z-index') returns 'auto' instead of the correct value. If the z-index is defined inline like '<div style="z-index:100;">', there is no problem. .css('z-index',whatever) works fine for setting the z-index.

Setting "position" to "absolute" or "relative" will resolve this.

This doesn't seem related to jQuery, has a bug been filed with Safari?

When setting "position" to "relative" or "absolute" be sure to correct auto alignment for cross browser compatibility where needed i.e "vertical-align" to "top" and "text-align" to "left".
