I think that was me asking about EPS import from AI. I haven't gotten
back around to it. I am thankful to hear of your partial success,
because, for the graphic I need to import, I don't need the text.

If you have any more ideas or solutions or just want to talk about
importing and exporting vector graphics from Mathematica, don't
hesitate to contact me.
