I'm a newbie to InDesign. I have a book "InDesign CS3 One-on-One", but couldn't find the answer to this question.
When I use Photoshop I always rasterize type layers before outputting to other formats. Is that necessary with InDesign? I just exported a document I'm working on to PDF, and the type looks a bit jagged.

Smooth text and smooth line art (for Laptop/LCD screens) is selected.
I am making the PDF simply by exporting my InDesign document as a PDF. I'm not sure which settings are relevant there, but I did just notice that "compress text and line art" was selected on the last export. Could that be causing the problem?
Is there another/better way of creating a PDF I should be using (from an InDesign file)?
Interesting. When I clicked on the link myself and viewed it in my web browser (Safari on Mac), the type looked fine. And when I opened it up in Preview, it also looks fine. But in Acrobat the type doesn't look as good. I'm concerned about that since Acrobat is what the vast majority of people will use to view it.
