I am using the MSIE dropshadow filter on a DIV element to give a dropshadow to the DIV box. Unfortunately it affects the text in the DIV as well. It is not _really_ bad because once the background image loads the texts dropshadows apparently go behind that (in effect hiding it) but for a few seconds while the page is loading all text within the DIV has a dropshadow making it very messy looking. Can that be avoided? I.e. how can I get the filter to affect only the DIV box, not the text inside it?

The details (snippets of the actual code):

filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.dropshadow(OffX=5, OffY=5, Color='#AAAAC3', Positive='true');
background-image: url(Graphics/bluegradientx.jpg);

<DIV class="FLBoxBlue">
<table><tr><td>Hello World!</td></tr></table>

I suppose I could make another DIV with the filter and then just place it in the same location with the same dimensions but that seems like a bad solution.
