Actually there is a preference in Reader to "smooth line art". By
default only "smooth text" and "smooth graphics" are checked. You can
find this under your display settings in the Reader preferences. It
makes a huge difference and I typically recommend that anyone viewing
my PDFs turn this option on. (Note - this is for the Mac version, I'm
not sure if it is in the PC version or not, but I would hope it is
available to PC users as well).
