On my site here (on the main page after the Splash), IE and Gecko display fairly similarly, but when I used Opera (7.11 to be exact), the absolutely positioned title behaves like there are not positioning rules placed on it. Any suggestions as to a good way to fix it?

Opera positioning bug

Hi

First, this doesn't cause a problem in Opera 7.23.

Second, which container are we talking about?

fancytitle-uniform?

If so, this is its css:

position: absolute;
top: 15px;

Yes?

It took ages to go through all your css. But, this style is applied to an image, which is inside a container called contentbox, which has a float defined.

And guess what? Opera 7 - 7.11 has a bug with floated containers and absolute positioning IF you don't give a width.

This article at cssdiscuss might help:

and then again, this may not be the problem!
