If you are using the default CM fonts then using T1 encoding will  
revert to the bitmapped EC fonts. You can correct that by downloading  
the CMSuper i-installer package (assuming you're using Gerben  
Wierda's gwTeX distribution). On the other hand, the Latin Modern  
fonts are part of gwTeX already so adding the line


will do an even nicer job. The Latin Modern fonts are very nice Type1  
replacements that allow the use of T1 fonts encoding.

Good Luck,
