site is a mess in opera 11.60

http://tinypic.com/r/xmirnn/5

homepage turns up 322 markup errors but only 22 css2.1 errors, but the site's almost completely unusable for me

As a webdeveloper I'd discovered long ago that if I develop primarily with Opera first, and then test in IE/FF/Chrome later, I wind up with far fewer cross-browser (in all browsers, not just opera) bugs to fix overall, which saves me gobs of time.

Just a thought but seriously the site's almost unusable for me in its present state (and I've always used Opera here).. this is actually the worst I've ever seen it, and I've no idea how it managed to break so horribly.

Well then WebDragon, don't let the door hit you in the ass.

No mess for me either, and I double checked the Opera version I have installed.

WebDragon, while you may actually have a problem, there are much nicer and more constructive ways to state your problem. Hopefully it was a mistake on your part.

Re: site is a mess in opera 11.60

I do check and I've checked the Aural Moon web site with several browsers on both Linux and Safari. It just so happened that I had the latest Opera on my Linux and I saw no page degradation, so I didn't go further. When WebDragon posted this thread, I promptly installed the latest (11.60) Opera on my Mac and it too displays the web site without these purported errors. I don't (I won't) do WEENDOZE, so I cannot comment on how Opera behaves on it but I wouldn't be surprised to hear that WebDragon is using Opera on WEENDOZE.

The AM page is really pretty simple. CSS and lots of <DIV>s. There are few graphics too. It's all composed by Joomla CMS. If it were that bad, I'd suspect I'd have seen reports of problems WRT Joomla's use on other sites.

I'm viewing it on Opera 11.60 on my windows 7 machine, and it's not broken at all, FYI. It all looks nice on chrome (latest), safari (latest), ie9 and FF6 as well.

Thank you for your independent tests and verification.

I think that the only thing that is "completely unusable" is WebDragon's system!
