When ClearType is on and you have a fading effect in your slide show, you see bold characters defected in IE6 and IE7. I couldn't find a better fix but putting a background color to the main teaser area has made it look better. I am basing on http://jszen.blogspot.com/2005/04/ie-bold-text-opacity-problem.html. Hope it'll be useful.

.views_slideshow_main {
background-color: #FFFFFF;
}

Cheers. Works for me.

Awesome!

Also worked for me.

Optionally, if the style isn't being picked up because you have another background color on your view, adding !important to the css style should override the current one.

.views_slideshow_main {
background-color: #FFFFFF !important;
}

This may be better handled using a use cleartype option from cycle. I am planning on adding this as I need it for my site.

Options are ClearType and ClearTypeBG
