I doubt it. The point is that the site works with different browsers and  
technologies.

Please also check if you are using "fit-to-width" when you zoom - Opera's  
feature for automatically changing layouts so that they (more often than  
not) work better when zoomed or seen in a mobile device.

You can find lots of old versions here http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/ - I  
guess you are looking for windows versions, so try here  
http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/win/

The easy way to do this (it also uses less of other people's time) is  
often to provide a pointer to the site.
