More weird Opera issues

Link underlines this time

For some reason Opera (7.11) has stopped underlining links everywhere (except for WebmasterWorld weirdly enough). I've got author mode on as the default; I haven't even defined a user stylesheet.

I've looked for a preference that might have been set, but no joy.

Any suggestions from anyone?

So you haven't changed the settings in Preferences->Page style->My link style...?

I tried to uncheck the underline checkboxes and observed the behaviour you're describing.

No, both "underline" and "color" are checked there. I upgraded to 7.21 over the weekend, but I'm still having the same problem. I even tried checking "strikthrough" but that had no effect. However, when I checked "Always border on links" I do get the border (looks like a raised button).

The same version of Opera running on a different machine (same OS) looks fine.

Could it have something to do with skins?

Found the answer: Preferences->Page style->Configure Modes...

Had the "Use my link styles" unchecked under author mode. Checking it cleared up the problem.

Not sure why though--Yahoo! and Google (and everyone else but WebmasterWorld) don't style their links?!?
