Topic: How to improve BMP graphics quality?

I am just doing some R&D.

I used Photoshop to create a few jpg files with only lines drawings (straight lines). They are anywhere from 1-pixel wide to 3-pixel wide. DIP is from 72 to 150, to 300. When I insert them into MS Word, they look fine on the screen. When I output the document into a pdf file, all the lines (regardless of line thickness and dpi) look terrible. They don't look as sharp as when they are in MS Word. I even tried print quality when printing the document to pdf distiller. Same result.

How can I make them look sharp on the screen?

Thanks.
