Quite right. Just turned on com. mode in IE8 and works OK. Recently dumped Opera as in my humble opinion it's losing it's way. Had problems with security and site loading but eventually gave up on it. There was another thread about Opera but can't find it now. Hope you don't encounter problems with it. I couldn't be bothered to faff about to find solutions to what is, essentially, a tool just to connect to the net. Thanks again.
Just an update. After selecting compatibility mode then the links show ok. Unfortunately scrolling on the site gives a rippling effect as if GPU drivers not installed. This on XP. Disabling compatibility mode hides the links again but scrolling ok. On Vista and trying out Firefox alpha the links are also partially hidden.
