Do progressive scan images actually look softer than interlace?

    Perhaps its just me but when you look at interlace images compared to progressive scan the aliasing of the interlace image makes it look slightly sharper and detailed. The raggedy outline on objects makes them stand out more.

    If Progressive scan dvd players actually create more screen detail how exactly do they do it? Do they actually process the picture information in a pixelplus type way creating extra detail that wasn't orignally there using special algorithims?
