Text Color fades within MC

Small problem that I hope someone can help:

I have a MC which acts as a button. It’s opacity changes on RollOver. Inside the MC is dynamic text with the menu name. The text changes from white to black on RollOver.

The problem is that the change in opacity for the MC affects the text color (Black text now grey). I know this can be changed by not embedding the text but I’m also masking this button, therefore the font needs to be embedded.

Can this be solved?
