[Mac OS X TeX] TeXShop, fonts, and Illustrator

<x-flowed>I like to use Illustrator for creating graphics for inclusion into 
LaTeX documents. Back in the old days of Classic, I would have a 
Textures file that I used to create labels for figures. I would save 
the typeset labels page as an eps file, import it into Illustrator, 
and then put them on the figure. I just tried creating some figure 
labels in TeXShop and when I open the resulting pdf file in 
Illustrator, some of the characters are missing. For example, I just 
tried creating some figure labels with $A$, $B$, $O$, and $\theta$ 
everything showed up except the $\theta$. Interestingly, if I open 
the pdf file in Acrobat Reader 5.0, I can see everything, including 
the $\theta$.

Does anyone know what is going on here? If so, do you know how to fix it?

I love LaTeX, but I hate all the problems associated with fonts. :-)

Thank you,
