Is the left most top menu spaced properly now in Opera?

Spacing is OK now, but there is something wrong with fonts.

Can you set

   font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

as default for all site elements?

That's problem with

   font-family: cursive;

in css. When replaced with

   font-family: Verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;

all is displayed correctly :)

I just downloaded opera and it still looks bad. :(

But if you see everything just fine, then I'm happy.

No, I don't see it correctly - I tested that it looks OK when changes to css are made (I did them locally).

You may also try (probably with the best effect):

   font-family: Verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
   font-style: italic;

Note that    font-family: cursive; is very general and in fact doesn't say a thing about how the text will be rendered, as user agent (read: browser) can select any font it likes to display the text. IE and Firefox select other font than Opera, but it is hard to tell one browser is OK, second is wrong, as font selection is left to browser discretion.

Yes. I have checked it in Opera and IE, and this variant looks best IMHO. Change all font-family: cursive; to the above two lines in style.css and it will be OK.
