CSS Test Suite Results: Opera 3.5 for Windows 32-bit

Previous Versions of This Page

This list of bugs has not yet been updated to include those bugs uncovered by the new version of the CSS Test Suite, released 1998 December 17. The additions to the test suite are significant, and will include many new bug reports.


The list that follows is a list of bugs in the browser, that is, what is described is in error. I have also included a few partially supported features as bugs.

Underlining is ugly. There should be a stable baseline, since text-decoration is not inherited, but simply spans children.

Note: These bugs are as of beta 11. I did not do a complete uninstall to verify them in the final version.

ex units are way too big; they are being treated as em (However, they seem to be done right in Section 5.4.1 and other places).
Weight 900 is not rendered as well in this page on italic, larger fonts as it is in section 5.2.5.
The underlining should be a constant color, since text-decoration is not inherited, but spans over children.
The following vertical-align does not work: middle.
5.5.02, etc.
The table width algorithm has problems with CSS margin and padding properties. I also think the TABLEs should, according to CSS, be the whole width of the page, but this is inconsistent with historical behavior.
The top edge of the thin maroon border (the second example) is black (or darker than the rest), as are the top and bottom edges of the double maroon medium border (the sixth example).
I think that according to the CSS2 spec, the vertical placement of the text around the floating images is incorrect.
5.6.4, 5.6.6
The list marker images don't have enough padding around them. (There is exactly zero separation between the marker and the text, and that is just a function of the size of the marker.)
With a small font, the text inside the table is carried to a second line even though there is room to widen the table. That is, the bullet is not counted in the line-width calculation. (See my comment on 5.5.02, etc.)
