I followed the guide on how to add subtitles to an existing DVD (use Subtitle Creator v2_3rc1 to turn srt to sup, use PgcDemux and Muxman), but the subtitles are somewhat jagged as played on a standalone or VLC/Media Player Classic ( see screenshot). I would like to have professional smooth looking subtitles. How can I get better looking subtitles? (Edit: click on image to get larger picture that clearly shows jaggedness.)

You could use an anti-aliasing color. Maybe a different font, but I'm no expert on that being happy with a plain Tahoma font. I do think anti-aliasing is important.
as manono says - antialiasing is a must (good anitalias) - as a substitute higher resolution/bigger font can improve readability, also font type can reduce perceived jaggies (search for straight/45 deg (on screen) lines font (or specialized TV font).
Subtitle format itself is a bit limited to 2/4 (higher depths are uncommon and can be not supported) colors thus area for anitalias is limited
