    Just to let you know your site looks a little bit strange in Opera on my laptop with Linux .

    We use Opera, Firefox, Safari to post from Windows 7, Mac OS X 10.5 Snow Leopard, Suse to post. We have not faced any peculiarity ever. The CSS line is added when the site was built to circumvent the problem.

    Thanks for reporting it.
