A little help?

So I'm trying to make a graphic here, and I'm putting some text on it. How do I get the text to be all feathery at the edges, and not pixellated? I'm using Adobe PhotoDeluxe, which admittedly is not the best program in the world, but it does a lot of stuff and I would think that it would handle it. But you can't seem to mess with the text too much. Like, if I have the text box selected, and then go to the Feather tool (which I'm not even sure is the correct thing to do), it selects the entire image, which indicates to me I'm not allowed to Feather text.

Is it in the font, or the graphic editing program? I have Fireworks at home; how can I do it there? I'm totally clueless as to even the theory behind it all, so even a quick lecture on that would be helpful; I understand things better if I know how they work. Is it a Feather that I'm really looking for, or something else?

Thanks in advance for the advice. I hope you can even figure out what I'm asking . . .
