No-there is no symbolic equations in Mma 2.2. It is all straight text. Mma's "postscript" is not readable by other applications and Mma 2.2 doesn't support other graphics formats. The only workaround I can think of for this is to copy the graphics into the clipboard, then open up paintshop pro(shareware available on the web), convert it to a true postscript and then into Illustrator. I also remember some talk in the users group about somebody who figured out what is wrong with Mma's postscript and would just manually change a line or two in the postscript code. Of course, if you had the funds for Mma 3.0, this would not be a problem. I assume that Wolfram is now shipping 3.0.1, which has the file conversion bugs fixed. Just the other day, I generated graphics in Mma and saved them to a file which I read into corel draw.
