    You seem to be facing a problem relating to Microsoft itself, which is called ClearType.

    jQuery seems to have a bug-tracking ticket relating to this:
    REMOVE FILTER:ALPHA(OPACITY=100) AFTER ANIMATION

    I tried using the version 1.4.2 and inserted the code as indicated, however the problem still persists during the transition, it is just a bit reduced as it only appears during the transition from one item to the other. Any other way to fix it?

    The code from the bug report is not something you should deal with.

    The Microsoft's ClearType problem is not one for which there is an easy fix.

    It might help though if you were to read up on other jQuery projects that have successfully beaten the problem, such how the jQuery Cycle plugin has beaten the ClearType problem.

    They also refer you to other reference material, in case you want to delve deeper in to the subject.
