background-position maximum and minimum value

Opera 8.02 does have a maximum (2048) and minimum (-2048) values for "background-position" property.

If the given value exceeds this numbers, it will be treated as the corresponding extremum. So the declaration:

background-position: 4000px 10px;

will result the same as

background-position: 2048px 10px;

No straight-forward workaround seems to be possible. Consider not using such a large numbers at all.

Limit for IE6 is 100 millions of pixels, literaly.

Still not fixed in 9 Beta 2 (build 8414). Drove me nuts isolating the problem; thanks to the original poster for the heads up.
