For some reason the text aliasing within InDesign just looks horrible? Sometimes it looks great, smooth, etc. Other times it looks sharp and crude like the body text here. In photoshop you have options for setting the text aliasing, and I'm a 9~ year user of photoshop, so switching to InDesign and not having that option is throwing me off.
It usually happens on sans-serif fonts like helvetica.
