Could be a problem with your pdf viewer. Try magnifying the image and see
if the artifacts disappear. Print out a page locally and see if it prints OK.
If you are publishing a book in the US or the UK I would suggest a serif and
not a sans-serif font. For these audiences sans-serif fonts are tiring and
I would suggest using something other than the standard Microsoft or Adobe
fonts. Sometimes unexpected font substitution can occur. Deja Vu family
has both Serif and Sans-Serif faces.
