Macromedia FreeHand is an equivalent tool to Illustrator, so you could
place the graphic there and do the same sort of things you were
planning on using AI for.

Perhaps it'd be better if you described what you were attempting to do
--- Herbert Schulz's suggestion of using Warmreader et. al. is a good
one, and may be appropriate to your usage.
