...Is my understanding correct? There's no such thing as an 18% super long-term capital gains tax rate for 2003, but the possiblility for the 8% rate does exist?

That's my understanding. However, for the sake of completeness, the Fool article missed the 25% (depreciation recapture) and 28% (collectibles) capital gains tax rates. So there are 7 different long-term capital gains rates to consider.
