Well, it looks okay to me, but the background (while not, for me, too
dark) conflicts with the link colour - it's still possible to tell them
apart, but only just.  For a similar effect, imagine a less annoying

Opera doesn't support the "overflow:" property :o(.  It also sometimes
seems to screw up box widths and suchlike for no discernible reason -
presumably on a whim.
