Unhappy Problem with Illustrator 10- last letter of text cut off

Hi all, I'm no expert on illustrator but I'm trying to make a header for my blog.

anyway, when I apply a transparency to my text, anything but "normal" and 100% opacity, it cuts off the last letter of the word. Weird, huh? I even tried other fonts, etc. i can show a screenshot of what I mean if you want.

any ideas? I've tried changing fonts (although I don't want to!) and tried changing all the transparency settings to no avail....

Any and ALL help GREATLY appreciated!!!!! thanks in advance! I'm so frustrated!! Grrr..

What version of OS X are you using? Illustrator 10 is 9 years old -- on a par with OS X 10.2.

Do you have Photoshop? You can do transparent text in PS. If you're going to save the image for the web as a GIF, PNG or JPEG, then there's little point in using Illustrator.
(Of course, it depends how old your version of Photoshop is.....!)
