In a presentation that I did myself just recently, I used Acrobat Reader 
5 in Classic (the OS X version with a checkmark for "open in classic"). 
It contains a lot of maths and tables, but it all looks very well. 
Acrabat Reader 5 has a couple of "smoothing" options and "CoolType" as 
well, maybe you forgot to turn them on. It really makes a difference.

Speaking of presentations: I'm still looking for a way to ...

- use prosper with pdftex (because it's easy to include movies in 
pdftex), i.e. pstricks with pdftex


- include quicktime movies in presentations created by LaTeX/prosper 
(not pdfTeX)

Any idea?
