jsquery .hide changes the font of the text in Internet Explorer

Priority: minor Milestone: 1.3
Component: effects Version: 1.2.6

In Internet Explorer 7, it appears that the .hide method changes the font or style of text as it is hiding it. When the text is redisplayed using .show, the text has a different font, or at least appears to be "less bold".

I have not extensively tested this issue, but it does not appear to happen in Firefox

I've been able to reproduce the problem using an example from the jquery web site, http://docs.jquery.com/Effects/hide#speedcallback. I've also attached a sample file. The problem seems to be more apparent with smaller text sizes.

This is due to IE/Windows ClearType font smoothing. I guess the fix is to remove the filter attribute if the opacity is set to 1.0?
