I'm using the Ultimate Fade-in slideshow script to put a slideshow on a page, with alterations to contain captions (which were posted here), but the text comes out very dotty. I have tried applying a class to the td it is, but no luck, any suggestions?

That will happen in IE 7 and in Opera 9+ because the text has style opacity, and in those browsers, even when the style opacity is 100%, the text loses its anti-aliasing quality.

I'd suggest upgrading to:

That script already has the ability to show captions built in, and can otherwise be made to look exactly like the Ultimate Fade script. However, the opacity styles are applied only to the images, not to the text, so you will not have that problem.
