    I have cleared up my sidebar and it seems to be working fine in most browsers except Opera. Anyone know how to fix this?

    wordpress blogs are best viewed with firefox. some people encounter problems viewing their blogs in other browsers, just like you.

    your blog failed validation at W3C Markup Validation Service.

    there are 33 Errors, that’s why it does look borked in *any* browser; it has nothing to do with neither Safari, nor the more with Opera (which, btw, is known as the best standards compliant one).

    you don’t need all that unordered lists and other badly formed markup I can see now in your widgets. wipe it out first.

    Could you specify what you mean by “all that unordered lists and other badly formed markup…”. I have put all my links in the blogroll widget. Other than that I only have two text widgets with code in them. Is it these two widgets that cause all of this?

    Thank you for the help!

    start with this widget:

    Line 255, Column 94: end tag for "li" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified .
    …(email redacted)">Samurai mail</a></ul></li></div>
    
    You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with "/>" instead of ">".
     Line 255, Column 31: start tag was here .
    			<div class="textwidget"><ul><li><a href="mailto:(email redacted)">Samura
     Line 255, Column 99: end tag for "div" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified .
    …@gmail.com">Samurai mail</a></ul></li></div>
    
    You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with "/>" instead of ">".

    and so on…

    you don’t need to have text widgets with code in them unless you now what this code does and how it should be specified.

    Well, I thought I knew what the code meant and how to specify it…but obviously I did not. ;)
    I looked at another wordpress blog where they had done the same thing, and it seemed to work fine. I used the exact same code to link to my mail with a bulletpoint in the sidebar.
    Messed up everything though…

    Your code is backwards. The LI gets closed before the UL. The validator is telling you that.

    …(email redacted)">Samurai mail</a></ul></li></div>

    See how you are closing the unordered list before closing the list item? Swap those around. Then, look for similar mess-ups.
