Hello,

It's probably where you are transforming the text size down alot. For example: You have an initial font-size set as 76% on the body tag, then you have font-size:0.9em on the wrap div, then you have 0.9em on the left side paragraphs. Different browsers interpret this in different ways... some will do 0.9 of 0.9 of 76%... its quite confusing. Try to reduce these different font size styles.

It might also be ClearType, so make sure it is turned on in your Display->Appearance->Effects page.

Clear type is usually on in IE, but not always on in XP.
Then you can customize it on this page,
