CSS Test Suite Results: Opera 3.6 for Windows 32-bit
Previous Versions of This Page
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.
- Last run through entire suite: 3.51
- Last run through existing bugs to see if they still exist: 3.6 beta 3
- Resizing window by dragging the right edge only causes reflow when window is enlarged, but not when it is shrunk. It should reflow both ways.
- The extra spacing under first-letter in a large font seems too big,
although it may not be.
In the second and third tests, the floats should carry to the next
line rather than expand their parent.
In the fifth, sixth, and seventh tests, first part, the floats should not
cause line breaks.
In the seventh test, the floats should be even with the text. (This
rule, however, is questionable. See my posts on www-style.)
The table is wider than it should be.
Padding and border of inline elements should not change the line height. (replaced elements excepted)
This page is a complete mess. All the images cause line breaks,
which they should not. Furthermore, they have no padding or border.
- Body margins are displayed as padding.
- These bugs are from 3.51 (I didn't reinstall):
font-family: cursive doesn't work very well because the
default cursive font is "Times New Roman." Things should come out a little
better just using the internal TTF font stuff. Of course, the fonts can be
fixed up using a very well hidden part of a dialog box (one doesn't
expect the CSS fonts to be underneath all the HTML stuff), but most
users won't figure that out.
- The font "serif" should be the same as the default font, at least in
the initial configuration. (For me, serif was Georgia, and the default
was "Times New Roman.")
bolder should not be any bolder than
is a relative descriptor, but this misunderstanding may have been due to
an early incorrect version of the W3C CSS Test Suite.
- Font weight 500 should probably be rendered as bold, as per the example
in the CSS2 spec.
Backgrounds of inline elements should not cover the line height. The size
of the background is determined by the top and bottom padding of the inline
text-decoration spans children, the image should be
- The following
vertical-align does not work on text (it works on images):
Middle align should align the middle of the image with the point halfway
above the x-height of the parent text.
text-bottom align is ignoring descenders.
Percentage aligns are incorrectly done as relative to the font-size,
instead of the line-height.
Negative values are not permitted on
line-height and should not
be converted to positive ones, but, rather, ignored.
- The right margins on inline elements are being applied on every line.
The negative margin-left causes strange effects at the right edge where there
is a line break.
Top and bottom padding on inline elements is not applied. It should
at least be applied up to the edge of the text on the next line, but
preferably to its full extent.
padding is set on all edges of an inline element,
the top and bottom padding should not affect the line
Border on inline elements should not affect the line spacing.
The line-height should not be treated as padding; if there is no
padding set, then the border should touch the text on the top and
bottom. However, it should not come closer than that, as it does
with double borders in in 5.5.18b and 5.5.20b.
Table cell borders do not seem to show up, although it may be only the
color that doesn't work.
The image in the second example should appear after the paragraph.
The same type of problem occurs in the sixth example if one makes the
The floats run all the way across the page. They should carry to
the next "line" when they no longer fit within their parent.
The bottom border of BODY should have space below it when the page
is not long enough.
The list marker images don't have enough padding after them. The
idea of the CSS2
marker-offset is what should stay constant.
- 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
There should not be an indent before the marker letter A, because it
is simply the first inline box in the line.
- Alternate Stylesheets (1.1)
A: active selector (2.1)
- all values of
display: except for
Other Bugs I've Heard About (not from CSS Test Suite)
Opera does not support background-images on TD elements. See a demo by
Jukka Korpela. He also shows a workaround. (reported by JK)
list-style-image marker images are not loaded if the
list is within a table. However, if the image is already in the
cache, they work fine. (reported on c.i.w.a.s)
(Not tested in 3.6b3.)
Opera has some problems with the inline box model. However, its
performance on my inlinetest is better
than any other current browser.
Opera does not seem to support background color on a
I was told this is fixed in 3.51, but I haven't
checked. I'm also not 100% sure that background-color should be
supported on a
