Sigh. As much as I love Opera, it does seem to have a few problems with
absolute positioning. Maybe it's not worth your time altering the
stylesheet to suit.

When I first load the page, the search box covers the text "Recent


If I reload, the page is re-rendered and the search box moves up a
little, but not to where it should be:

I intend to do so. I just raised the point in case you wanted to change
the default behaviour when $HTMLVSpace=''. To my mind, $HTMLVSpace=''
means "don't use HTML+CSS to control vertical spacing; just return
default HTML behaviour". To then see that paragraphs are not
separated by a blank line seems a little bit counter-intuitive.
