DISABLE ILLUSTRATOR ANTI-ALIAS TEXT

Is there a way to turn off anti-alias on text in Illustrator CS.  Currently I am typing the text in Photoshop, turning off anti-alias, then dragging in over to Illustrator CS.  Wondering if there is a way to cut this step out when designing my webpage layouts.

Go to the general preferences and turn off Anti-Alias Artwork.

As weed says, in Edit | Preferences | General, you can uncheck Anti-Alias Artwork.
This will affect ALL artwork, not just type.

If you want to affect type alone, you can rasterize it before exporting. The Effects | Rasterize command allows you to choose anti-alias settings. You pick "None".

I'd suggest creating a layer, or multiple layers, to hold your rasterized text, keeping the original vector text around for editing.
