The Input line for the first example in the Help message for "Dotted" in Mathematica 7 is Graphics[{Dotted, Line[{{0, 0}, {2, 1}}]}] I copied the Output graphic produced by that input in the Help message using the Mathematica "Copy as PDF" menu command; pasted it into an Illustrator document that was open in Illustrator; and magnified the view of that document. The "dots" are clearly not dots but dashes or rectangles that are something like 4 or 5 times longer than they are wide.
