huh?  almost all of my sites look perfectly fine in Opera (you did 
say 5)... it has no problems with .gif images...

and if you're designing for 4.x browser exclusively, can i assume 
you're using DHTML stuff?

otherwise, you shouldn't need to use too many hacks, and you can 
still use CSS all you want....

evolt.org is an example of that... all compliant code, lots of CSS, 
still works on older browsers, works great in Opera...

what Opera does not dig is non-standard HTML and browser-
specific hacks...
