Robert WithersImproving text appearance and resolution for an FCP project

Hi all,
I'm cutting an SD NTSC movie in FCP 5.1, creating intertitles using the FCP text function.
At some point I will want to deinterlace this and convert to HD maybe 720p.
Maybe I'll switch to FCP 7 to get some more flexibility with the export.
I've heard that titles might look better if created in AE.
Is this true?

Should I recreate them in AE and drop into the FCP timeline before transcoding? After?
I may want to save this as FCP project as a Quicktime file and import into Premiere cause this could be part of a larger PPro project. Should I wait and recut/replace the titles in PPro? That seems like more work. Would it offer any benefits?
I'm cross-posting this to the FCP and AE lists cause I don't know how different the memberships are.
Thanks for any thoughts,
