Odd results Opera 6

P: n/a
I've recently completed a site upgrade for a local business. While I
imagine our average visitor will be using some version of IE, I'm
troubled by the odd results I get under Opera 6.05 (under Windows).
(Yes, I'm a little behind on upgrading, but I figure so is the typical
user.)

If you go to http://www.dinnersdelivery.com/menu.htm, it looks
reasonable under IE 6 or Netscape 6. But under Opera 6, I get blank
space above and below my top, red DIV. If I add a border of at least
1px to that DIV, the space goes away, but I get a gap between the tabs
and the two DIVs below. Either way, the tabbed menu effect is
spoiled. Is this an Opera bug or an error in my CSS that only Opera
is showing?

Viewing in Opera 7.23, it renders fine. Not familiar with older versions
of Opera, but if it renders fine in Mozilla and IE, I think you're OK. I'd
be inclined to think that Opera users, out of all browser users, are the
most likely to have upgraded to at least 7.23.

In fact, the only flaw I see in the whole site is the use of points for
font size. If you'd change 12pt to 1.2em, 10pt to 1em, and 8pt to 0.8em
I'd give you a really big gold star.
