I see. Yes, Opera 8+ has a problem here. Opera 9 (still only in preview)
doesn't have that problem. I stopped "fixing" Opera 8+ some 11 months
ago, at about the time the first 8-version arrived. It isn't worth it -
too many regressions.

It is also pretty hard (nearly impossible) to hack back and forth
between browser-versions in a reliable way. Such hacks tend to break
sooner rather than later, and should be avoided.

I will advise a fix though - for all browsers.
- A bit from the lowest part of that image should be made to repeat down
the left side of #innerwrapper - a faux-column.
The reason is that the gap reappears in all browsers I can lay my hands
on (including IE) when the font-size is blown up to a readable size -
for me. Such a self-resizable faux-column will cover up the gap, almost
regardless of browsers and user-options.
