Opera positions the DIVs with the images, and they overlap the text
beneath, only at a different position. So a statement of 'doesn't
support positioning' is misleading. It just doesn't position the DIVs
like you expect.

If you add a width to the positioned DIVs of 200px, Opera behaves
exactly like Mozilla and MSIE6 on my system. Other browser apparently
automatically 'shrinkwrap' absolutely positioned DIVs, but Opera
doesn't. So the DIVs are positioned, but they are window wide, and the
images are centered inside their DIVs.
