Default Wordpress Blurry Sub-Menu Text

I'm using a theme called DeepFocus in Wordpress and I've made several CSS changes to change the way the navigation menu looks. One of the changes I made was to make the drop-down sub-menus have a light text color with a dark background. However, I can't, for the life of me figure out how to get rid of the text shadow on these sub-menu links. You can see what I'm talking about here:

If you rollover "Film", you'll see that "Cinematography" and "Editing" are both blurred and difficult to read. The same applies to every other drop-down menu.

I've done a control-F search through the stylesheet for every instance of "text-shadow", and changed them all one at a time, but to no avail. I assumed it would be in the "ul.nav" section but I've added "text-shadow: 0px 0px 0px #000000;" to every little bracket and seen no change. I put that section of the style sheet in the following pastebin for convenience.

I'm beginning to question whether it's even a text shadow or some other formatting characteristic.

Any thoughts?

Someone might still answer, but we're not very fond of CMSs like WordPress.

It's probably down to the cufon rendering engine.

That was it! Found an on/off button for Cufon Replacement in my Theme setting. Had no idea what that was for.

FrankC, I use wordpress because I can customize a website for a client (albeit sometimes with difficulty as in this situation) but then hand it over and teach them to manage quite easily because of the GUI. It's much easier than trying to explain basic html, css, rss, and ftp to a technophobe. Do you have any recommendations for CMSs that are more CSS friendly?

Yep: Snippetmaster, a CMS with a WYSIWYG editor, with which one can edit normal HTML pages.
