Updating text descenders getting cut off in IE

OK – so I am updating text in a page by using jQuery cycle. There’s 3 divs contained within another div that show one after another as per the jquery settings.

Anyway, the problem was, as the text updated the descending characters disappeared, but only in Internet Explorer. I found a few references, especially this one from Typekit: Descenders cut of in IE

So, the solution seems to be if the text is updating in a div, give a height and vertical space in the div to allow for the descenders even when they’re updating.
