I’m using a google font that works fine in the menus, but seems to have a shadow of some sort in the content. I set the font color to white and i still see some sort of outline. I have tried to set outline, text-shadow, font-variation, border, even ms-filter’s dropshadow to 0, none, not enabled. And nothing works.
The problem was the ms filter DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow. This was set on the div container. I didn’t know it would apply to the fonts within it! I had to pretty much take it off for IE 8 using style sheet conditionals:
Trying to add that to a container within the container with a shadow cause a black background or black line (which i’m assuming is the shadow). So the only solution was to set it on the container that previously set it.
