- text rollover in opera6

when the mouse rolls over the link the colour changes to yellow, the font
weight increases and the text is capitalised.
It works fine in IE and Netscape but not in opera.
There are 2 problems:-
1) The text-transform to capital doesn't work at all
2) When the font weight increases, in IE/Netscape all the text is displayed
but in Opera the text is not allowed to expand the space it occupies. The
weight increases but the end of the text is cut off
Does anyone know why? and there a way to correct this?
Re: text rollover in opera6
No, it is a problem with the Opera rendering engine prior to version 7.
The HTML cannot reflow to take into account of parts of the page that
is the main reason for the complete rewrite of the rendering engine in
My suggestion is to either stop using the "font-weight:bold;" or just be
content that there are more Opera 7 users than Opera 6. :-)
