                        var $active = $('#slideshow div.active');

                        if ($active.length == 0) $active = $('#slideshow div:last');

                        var $next = $active.next().length ? $active.next(): $('#slideshow div:first');

                        $active.addClass('last-active');

Try changing to:


if ($.browser.msie) {
 $active.children().each(function() { $(this).css('filter', ''); });
 $next.children().each(function() { $(this).css('filter', ''); });
}

Hi jmatix,

No it is strange, the pargraph text is fine, but the span text is appearing pixelated, the css for this is

.greyTxtbold{font-family:arial; font-size:12px; color:#474747; text-decoration:none; font-weight:bold;}

any ideas why this is happening?

Matt

This is a known IE problem - non anti-aliasing done for animated text. There is a fix described here:

See if that works for you.

Thanks for the link,

ok I have the following code now which doesn't seem to be doing anything.

any ideas what I could be doing wrong? am I calling the code correctly?

i have include the js like this;

<script type="text/javascript" src="./js/IEffembedfix.jQuery.js"></script>

and stored the image in the root image folder (i.e. ~/images/hIEfix.png) and changed the url in the js file to be;

var pngimgurl = "images/hIEfix.png";

Hope you can help.

Matt.

Are you running in IE 6? IEffembedfix.jQuery.js is apparently geared for IE 7/8. If you look at the code it checks for jQuery.support.objectAll to make sure IE 7/8.

It's a known jQuery bug.

You have to remove the "filter" style when it's done like this:

.animate({ opacity: 0.0 }, 1000, function() {
  $(this).css('filter', 'none');

Or:

.animate({ opacity: 0.0 }, 1000, function(){
    if ($.browser.msie){this.style.removeAttribute('filter');
