Nick Rigby discovers and writes that Opera 8 has a maximum
text-indent value of 32697 pixels.
Clearly this is an edge case and not all that common, but those that use the "off-left" technique might find something familiar in his quote:
There would be no need to ever use a value this large, but I happened to be using -9999em originally, which, depending on the default font-size of the document, is a lot more than this limit value. Hence, it did not work in Opera 8.
Anyways, just a little tip for your toolbox.
