I have worked with a large number of Adobe Illustrator files and have found that one *must* save them as PDFs in order for them to be reliably used anywhere outside of the Adobe world. One need not use Illustrator, for opening the .ai file in Adobe Reader and then saving it as a .pdf gets rid of all of the editing crap that is embedded.
