This example is for illustrative purposes only ... so that I can ask
questions about a relatively simple graphic. I hope that somebody from
Wolfram might have an explanation and answer.

p = ListPlot[{{0, 0}, {1, 1}},
    PlotStyle -> PointSize[0.05],
    AxesOrigin -> {-0.1, -0.1}, PlotRange -> {{0, 1}, {0, 1}},
    Epilog -> {Text["TEXT", {0.5, 0.5}, {0, 0}, {0, 1}]}

Export["p.eps", p, "EPS"]

Export["p.pdf", p, "PDF"]

Export["p.wmf", p, "WMF"]

Export["", p, "AI"]

(1) Why does none of these files "p.*" replicate the graphic displayed in
the Mathematica frontend window. For those who do not have the applications
to view all the resultant files, the differences are _primarily_ to do with
how much of the two dots are shown (or not)?
(2) Why is the AI file not parsable by Illustrator 8.0? Is it meant to be?
(3) Why is there no text  ("TEXT") in the WMF file? and ...
(4) Why do the files (different as they are from the frontend display, not
even replicate one another?
