The problem is that you are using SVG fonts. That is every character that
is drawn is converted into a set of curves. The real problem is that the
viewer (eg. acrobat) cannot display these curves very well. If you print
out the document (on a decent printer) you will see that the text appears
how it should.
There is a limited implementation that does not draw the text as curves
(using normal pdf text instead) but it doesn't handle many things well.
just put this in you config file:
