I'm pretty sure the problem is that Acrobat Reader (at least version 4)
cannot handle Type3 fonts in an intelligent way. I have not checked out version
5, because, as you so eloquently point out, the open source stuff is superior.
In any case, a little bit of googling turned up this page
(http://www.isds.duke.edu/~sto/pdf.html) which details steps on how to avoid
ugly PDF; note, I am currently stuck in NT4, which prevents me from verifying
the steps. This page (http://www.aeroconf.org/cgi-bin/autharea/latex.htm) seems
to confirm it. Hopefully this will create beautiful PDFs for you. :) Let me
know if it works.
