That's some odd CSS, but I BELIEVE that IE and Firefox have it right 
here (though I suspect the line SHOULD have a green background, but 
since the document only has one body element...).  When I looked at it 
in Opera (both 8.5 and 9 Beta), it filled the background with green.  My 
guess is that means Opera is automatically adding <html> and <body> or 
something?  I'm somewhat confused about this.
