There was no specific Opera for Linux problem. It is rather that you've 
got black text on a black background. Black on black is tough to read 
for those among us (like myself on some browsers), who for whatever 
reason, surf with images disabled.
body { background: #000 
url(; color: #000; }
Changing the background color on the body to #FFF should fix it. And 
bringing the content p up to default will make it easier for the senior 
faculty, and some students whose vision may not be as sharp as yours, to 
read the content at 1280 and up. I regret I did not make this clear when 
I wrote off-list.
