I thought I had read somewhere, some time back, that PDF is now, in recent versions of Illustrator, _the_ standard format for Illustrator, and for working across all Adobe products; and in fact, here's a direct quote from the Help in Illustrator CS 11: "Adobe Illustrator has used Adobe PDF (Portable Document Format) as its native file format for several versions . . . " As stated in my original post, I don't know if the problem with opening certain Mathematica-exported figures in Illustrator is a WRI bug in writing the PDF file or an Adobe bug in reading it . . . but if I had to bet on this, my money would be on a WRI bug.
