Has anyone had any luck importing graphics from Adobe Illustrator into 

I saw some discussion about that here in August, but the verdict seemed 
inconclusive.  On a Mac running Mathematica 5.0 and Adobe Illustrator 
10, I've been able to import an EPS file generated by Illustrator, by 
turning off the preview (no TIFF) and setting the version compatibility 
way back to Illustrator 4.0.  Text in the graphic comes through pretty 
messed up, though.  (Naturally, I want vector graphics.)

BTW, what I *really* want to do is take some Mathematica output, draw 
little "callout" arrows and remarks around it, and put the result back 
into a Mathematica notebook.  Is there some much superior way to do 
this, that bypasses exporting and importing?
