Font Rendering problem in IE7


I got a strange problem in IE7 with the font rendering after I apply a fade in effect using Spry.

At this page you can see a screenshot of the problem in IE7: http://mariuzzo.com/p/thescripts/ie7.JPG

It work on Firefox and Opera but no in IE7
Here is another screenshot in Firefox: http://mariuzzo.com/p/thescripts/ff.JPG

Did you know something about that?

And here is the source code :

ya, IE is like that....
i don't think you can change that UNLESS you do any "core-edits"

but good point..
your website if mostlikely going to get 85% of the hits from IE...
so, might want to watch that..

also, can i have your website's URL so i can test it out..
