That's kind of my point.  I agree the site looks very nice other than the
Opera rendering issue.  It's a much more attractive and aesthetically
pleasing site...but it also looks like it cost alot more to produce than
the previous site.  If you're a business trying to make a good first
impression on potential customers, this makes sense.  If you're a
non-profit running a registry for a captive customer/member base, why go
to the expense?  How much time/$ was spent designing and choosing the new
logo?  Why did ARIN need a new logo?

I've tried the latest public release of Opera for Linux.  It fails to
render the front page.
