Sounds like you are using bitmapped fonts (the LaTeX default) in your
pdf files. The correct but trickier solution would be to get the Type1
versions of Computer Modern installed and then convince dvipdf to use
them. The easy solution is to use a different Type1 font: put
(or palatino, etc.) in your preamble (LyX: Layout -> Latex preamble).
