The latest Opera 8.0 beta doesn't show that problem, but see next.

It still shows this, though. The cause is that massive negative
text-indent. A smaller value, like -200em, got rid of the scrollbar for
me. It also fixed the extra h1 text in Opera 7.54.
I'm sure there are better image replacement techniques (the big negative
margin just doesn't 'feel right' to me). Have a poke around the CSS wiki.

When I validated the CSS file - it pointed me directly to the problem.
There's an extra '#' character at the end of line 201 (in the #design
I also validated the HTML - you have declared your document to be XHTML.
That means all element and attribute names must be lowercase. eg "<a href"
not "<A href", "http-equiv" not "HTTP-EQUIV", etc. With the meta tags,
they should end with "/>" not just ">". That goes for any other elements
that don't have closing tags too, like images (<img ... />). That should
fix most of the errors. The rest look pretty self-explanatory.
