    How are you viewing the PDF? Acrobat Pro displays strokes less than 1 pixel
    wide as 1 full pixel. Preview on a Mac anti-aliases fine strokes.

    When the PDF is opened in Illustrator, the stroke weights are correct.

    I am using Acrobat reader v7, but it was the same problem with the previous
    Reader. Most customers like their files in that format, and even if they have
    the PC version of Reader, they get the same thing.

    The lines weights which appear to be most prone to this are 1pt.
