Not so fast...

It appears that a bug has been fixed in the Acid3 test that drops Opera's score back to 99. The comments at reddit.com suggest that this is because Opera has been coded to the test, not the spec.

Coding to the test rather than the spec would seeme to defeat the purpose of the test itself.

Look at some of the comments from the Webkit/Safari guys too. They code around a handling issue with the font used in Acid3.

Coding to the test rather than the spec again.

Well actually - it looks like they are basically removing the anti-aliasing of the font so that the rendered result will be "pixel-perfect"... I think that's a stupid requirement for passing the test, personally.
