The font trick with duplicated headings has a bug. When viewed with VoiceOver on a Mac or iPhone (not sure about other screenreaders) the headings are read twice. My primitive knowledge made me expect this not to be the case, as we have:

@media speech { .fill { display: none; } }

I thought display: none elements usually were not read and would be skipped, but that seems not to be the case. i consider this fix more important than Opera rendering glitches, as it's unfair to a minority and probably easy to solve.

There's a VoiceOver-specific article here that recommends using the aria-hidden="true" attribute.
