What platform and OS? What program and version is the source doc in?
What software, version, and process are you using to create the PDF?
What's the primary purpose of the PDF -- high-quality offset printing,
office-quality laser printing, online viewing, ...?

You'll have to give the list more specifics to get a specific answer.
