This advice turned out rather well actually. I now have the application 
running in a window with only the widgets at the top right hand corner 
that minimise, maximise, and shut the window. The trick is to turn off 
everything that can be turned off in the appearance options and then 
launch the browser with the command line...

"C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera.exe" /kiosknormalscreen /nomenu /nopanel 

There is one small drawback to Opera running in this mode; the toolbar 
at the top of the horde screen doesn't float properly, so views with 
lots of icons on the bar, and the 'My Calendars' drop-down list, 
actually have some of the icons below the the toolbar. Choosing a 
suitable colour scheme in the display properties means this isn't too 
much of a problem, but it woould be good to know whether Opera itself is 
defficient here, or whether the horde code could be massaged to take 
account of this situation.
