This is caused by a difference between ISO Latin-1 (iso8859-1) and Windows
Latin-1 (windows-1252) encodings. Safari applies a couple of hacks to treat
both encodings as Windows Latin-1 (which is wrong from standards point of view,
but is necessary to match other browsers).

The test demonstrates a case where these hacks weren't applied correctly. This
bug has been already fixed in current nightly builds
(http://nightly.webkit.org), so I'm closing it as WORKSFORME. I'm not quite
sure what fixed it, maybe it was the patch in bug 7602.

As another workaround, you can specify windows-1252 encoding in HTTP
Content-Type header, or in an HTML HTTP-EQUIV meta.
