Opera Hack

Sent by Hawk Shango on 22 March 2006 18:06

You know what? I am going to say this... Forget about it! For Opera browsers, it ain't worth the
time and effort to fix the design for them. I am going to leave it be. It is not too big of a
problem, although I would like to achieve a consistant look across the board for the following
browsers: IE, Firefox and Opera.
