    links not working in Opera

    I am using Opera 7.54

    On the following page:

    http://www.edgworth-horticultural-society.co.uk/

    there are two links - to a page of photos and a newsletter. In Mozilla
    and IE there's no problem, but neither work in Opera. I presume it's
    something to do with the page being redirected, but can't see why Opera
    doesn't follow the link whereas other browsers do.

    Is it a fault on the page, or is Opera?

    The page.

    Basically, the <base href>, uses a relative name...

    <base href="www.edgworth-horticultural-society.co.uk/">

    ....rather than a full-qualified absolute address:

    <base href="http://www.edgworth-horticultural-society.co.uk/">

    If this was fixed, then the 2 URLs would be correctly interpreted by Opera as:

    http://www.edgworth-horticultural-society.co.uk/Show/index.htm
    http://www.edgworth-horticultural-society.co.uk/newsletter-04_08.htm

    If you know the web page author, please inform them of this, and have them
    validate their page(s) for other errors:

    <URL:
    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fmyweb.tiscali.co.uk%2Fphilb roughton%2FEHS%2F >

    The page was obviously generated by a Microsoft Word.
