Font, colour and link settings


Under Fonts and colors you can change font style, size and colour for text, headers, forms and some of other style sheet settings. Select, for example, <h1> and then click on CHOOSE to select your preferred <h1> settings.

You can also click on 'My link style...' and choose link colours and whether they should always be underlined. Select 'Strike through' for visited links and see if you like the effect. 'Always border on links' is an interesting option.

Other style settings

Experiment with the settings under "Page style", especially the "User mode" settings. Here you can specify whether you want to use your own styles or those specified by the web designer.

Web designers can unchecked "Tables" and see if their web pages 'transform gracefully' when they are linearised.

Switching between styles

Opera Browser Icons

To the left of the location bar are four small icons. The third icon, which looks like a document, is the 'Toggle between Author Mode and User Mode' icon.

Click this icon and switch between the styles specified by the web designer or your own settings according to your preferences.

Turning off graphics

The second icon on the same toolbar allows you to quickly turn off graphics.

Clicking this icon allows Web developers to quickly check whether they have specified alternative text for images.
