Spacing issue in Safari - different space gap bug

I want to use McTabs for a project but the spacing between tabs is not consistent in Safari as is with other browsers. The spacing between tabs in Safari on your page shows this if you check it with different browsers. I see the consistency in Chrome, FF, and IE.

You can see the issue when viewing this page:

I'm running Windows 7, Safari 5.1.7.

You can fix the Safari white space bug by one of the following approaches:

Approach #1:

Leaves no space between node elements inside the UL in the HTML code:
So instead of:
<ul id="tabs1" class="mctabs"> <li><a href="#view1">A</a></li> <li><a href="#view2">B</a></li> </ul>
You should:
<ul id="tabs1" class="mctabs"> <li><a href="#view1">A</a></li><li><a href="#view2">B</a></li> </ul>
<ul id="tabs1" class="mctabs"> <li><a href="#view1">A</a></li><!-- --><li><a href="#view2">B</a></li> </ul>

Or approach #2:

Specify different letter-spacing for UL and LI in the mctabs.css:
ul.mctabs { ... letter-spacing:-4px; } ul.mctabs li { ... letter-spacing:normal; }

I am using and I met the same problem, and struggled for two hours and no luck until found your answer. You are the hero Milo!
I also found your McTabs is much better than from either the look and the functionality. The select by URL  and by anchor is really a big help!
