          Anti aliasing doesn't work with transparent backgrounds. You'll get the
          best result by exporting it with a background color that matches the
          page you will be using it on.

            Most likely you need to specify a different matte color when you do the
            export.

              Sometimes you can get good results by choosing Alpha Transparency and no matte color in the Export Preview window, but that can slightly increase the filesize.

              If that doesn't work, then your best bet is to follow the advice mentioned above.
