I suppose you mean you tried to open a PDF file created by TeXShop in  
Adobe Illustrator. Don't. That won't work, Illustrator doesn't  
recognize the encodings of the fonts embedded in TeX-produced PDF files.

The only workaround that I know of is a utility created by Gary Gray.  
It turns the characters in the TeX-produced PDF file into outlines  
(i.e. they become drawings and are no longer recognized as belonging  
to a font), which makes Illustrator happy.

I don't remember the name of the utility or where it can be  
downloaded from, but it should be possible to dig that info from the  
list archives.

You can, but that won't solve the problem with Illustrator: you will  
experience exactly the same problem as with PDF files.

PS Please don't start a new thread by replying to a message from  
another thread: modern email software such as Apple's Mail or  
Mozilla's Thunderbird will recognize your message as belonging to the  
original thread, and put it among the messages from this thread.  
That's often referred to as "thread hijacking". That makes it more  
difficult for others to follow a thread, and it's likely your  
messages will simply be overlooked.

All this is because email software doesn't identify threads based on  
the message subject, but on the hidden header In-reply-to, in your case:
