Description Brion Vibber 2008-03-14 18:50:11 UTC
Under MSIE 8, some sets of check boxes with labels show signs of overprinting -- the items get progressively darker due to multiple text rendering applications with font smoothing enabled.

Seen on the namespace checkboxes on the search form and at Special:Preferences.

Sounds like an upstream issue which needs to be filed with Microsoft.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2009-02-18 22:01:58 UTC
This seems resolved as of IE 8rc1 on XP.
