Widescreen output softness

I'm in a PAL land. I'm working in 1050x576. When the comp is done, I'm dropping it into a new comp using the PAL D1/DV widescreen preset 720x576 and using the same D1/DV PAL Widescreen 1.46 pixel aspect ratio, which I thought was the correct workflow.
But the output file is noticeably softer in this squeezed file compared to say a file that I output at 1050x576. I notice it particularly on type and graphics. Any thoughts as to why I'm getting this softness? It's only small, but it's noticeable and annoying.
