This is a very curious problem. Have you tried using an absolute path to the .js file?

Yes, I tried it just now. But it made no difference.

Hmmm... I just searched the Opera knowledge base and Google and found nothing about a bug. Let's get down to basics.
HTML and CSS validates

Opera Version 6.05
System Windows 2000
validated XHTML 1.0 transitional and CSS2
Actually the link is on the site in my profile. Top left labelled "Swap bar". It would be interesting to see if anybody else has the same problem, or if it's something to do with my Opera installation.

Opera is very picky when it comes to tag locations. Is the <script> tag located within the <head></head> section?

Just looked at the source of your site ..
Tried moving the script tag down?
I don't see why it wouldn't work .. :(

Problem solved. It's appears to be a bug.
If the name of the js file includes the word "script" Opera does not load the file. If I change the name, then Opera loads the file.
Presumably Opera gets confused if another word "script" appears between the <script> tag and </script>. It doesn't mind "scripts" or "scriptanything", but fails on the exact match.
The js file url was "domain/scripts-js/lib-script.js". It is now "domain/scripts-js/lib-standard.js", and Opera loads it.
Of course I still have a second problem, because now Opera is objecting to "innerHTML", but at least its no longer giving those misleading messages. :)
Many thanks for all your help.

Thanks DrDoc but I've already been there. "innerHTML" is not supported by Opera. There's a thread about it here which suggests using the DOM method, but doesn't actually provide any example code. So I'll have to do some digging.

Opera 7 will support it though :)

Yes! Dare I say about time?
I'm afraid the only opera I like comes with singing. :)
