UPDATE....FIXED it MYSELF!!!!!!!
actually, found an answer to this problem myself...the credit needs to go to the guy who really knew this stuff....unfortunately cant leave this page to get his name...
Set the 'cleartypeNoBg' option to true.
******the cleartypeNoBg option is mentioned a bunch of times throughout the js for this plugin....serach for it within the js file, and look for the one with false listed there...change that to true, and voila!
