Hi all,

I have a dynamic service that contains annotation feature classes.  In my web app, the annotation comes out quite pixelated and with a tiny halo even though no text effect is used in the MSD.  See attached screenshot.  It's quite pedantic I know but does anyone know how I can smooth out the text?  It's only really an issue when dark text is sitting on a relatively dark background.  Something tells me it's related to the graphics engine.  Any other ideas?

Thanks for any suggestions.
