So why are you saying things which makes it look like
you attack opera's possibilities to change the display layout?
Don't you realize that opera users can find that offensive?

As a web designer you
should use a markup language to organize the content, and then
it is up to each user to choose client, customize client, use
his own style sheets, mark links any way he likes,
and decide exactly how he wants to see your site.
