Unwanted Symbol Rasterization

We have recently moved to ArcGIS 10. I am converting our .mxd files. Most of 9.3.1 comes across with minimal effort. However, I have several 2 tiered area symbols in a 9.3 symbol set (eg solid color with simple line fill on top) that appear rasterized when plotting on our HP plotter at any scale. I use Windows printer engine with default to the HP plotter. I have confirmed that no raster layer is drawing over these symbols. In 9.3 they plotted clearly. Do I need to recreate the symbol set in AG10? Change my printer settings? The legend symbol prints clearly and the enlarged view in the .mxd looks normal. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance, F
