[OS X TeX] TeX and Illustrator Fonts -- CMR Works and Lucida doesn't

Further to my earlier post, I've been pursuing the issue of being  
able to edit pdfs created by PDFLatex on Mac OS X with Illustrator  
CS1. I had earlier thought that this wouldn't work at all, because  
Illustrator won't recognize the fonts, but I now find that I  
Illustrator WILL correctly handle the default CMR fonts with no  
problem but NOT the Lucida Y&Y fonts.

I've checked my system, and I don't have the Tex-Illustrator version  
of CMR on the system. When I open the CMR text (created with TeXShop  
2 defaults) in Illustrator CS, I can see the CMR fonts and even  
select the text line and add text. I know it is the Tex version of  
CMR, because when I type a space, it gives me a ? mark rather than a  

Now, when I Latex the simple document with the Y&Y Lucida fonts with  
the following preamble:


I find I can't open the Lucida fonts in Illustrator CS. It  
substitutes another font instead.

Does anybody have any suggestions as to where I should look to figure  
out how to get the Y&Y Lucida fonts being treated the same as the CMR  
fonts in Illustrator?

Thanks, in advance, for any help.
