Big John, Stefan and the others,
Thanks a lot for your help in tracking down the
problem with Opera 7's display and alternatives for
the nobr tag.
I am not sure what I should do, though, regarding
making the website work "properly" in Opera 7. Should
I wait until Opera 7 final (not beta) is released to
see if the problem is fixed? It does not look pretty
as displayed in Opera 7, however, the links are still
I fear that if I start messing with that (long and
complicated) stylesheet now, I could mess up the site'
display in other browsers. So, should I just wait for
a fix, or try to modify it now?
