Absolute positioning and text-align

Opera misplaces absolutely-positioned elements when their containing block is subject to text-align of center or right. It places them where they would have been if they were subject to text-align:left.

Explorer Mac positions the text correctly, but makes the divs far too wide.

Note that you need to be setting display:inline on a DIV, or similar, to be affected by this.
