Font looks rough/jagged in Internet Explorer

Please take a look at the header section of this page: www.mwebdev.com/at.html. Look at the large text in the middle. Wait for the text to change (it's a slideshow). When the text changes, the font becomes very ugly and jagged in IE 6 and 7. It looks fine in FireFox.

Is this a CSS problem? I've bumped my head for hours trying to figure this out. Please help!

Thanks in advance.

lharrispv,
If I add the following code, then my entire paragraph disappears. How do I make only the background color tranparent (and not the text)?
background-color: #cccccc;
filter: alpha(opacity=0);

I need the background color to not show at all. This really messes up the design.

The size of the div is dynamic. It changes as the slideshow changes content. I assume this would mess things up with a background image, correct?

If I use this background image approach, I would like to image to blend in to the existing background. So could I take a slice of the current header background and match it that way?
