Sprite Font With Effects?

Can you add an effect to a spritefont? I just want it so if I hover over a line of text it'll change color.
I added a SetColor effect, but whenever I hover over it, instead of changing color, it just disappears instead of changing color. This happens in both Chrome and Firefox. Though it displays the color I want in-editor.
Are effects not enabled on spritefonts?

I've also tried creating a second font set with a different color, but you can't change in-code what image the spritefont uses, so that's also out. I really don't want to have to create clones of every line of dialogue JUST to get some text that changes color, and I'd really like to use a consistent font through the game...

(I'd add a capx, but really what I'm trying to do is so simple...)

EDIT: I should add that I've been trying multiple different effects, including AdjustHSL, Emboss, and Glow Horizontal.MadameBerry2013-12-15 02:31:52

It looks like this.
I think I've reached the conclusion that something is wrong with either my browser or my computer. Effects on anything screw everything up and I don't know why. I'm just going to avoid using them until I figure out what's going on. =/
