I had terrible problems with using math labels (mostly in Lucida  
Bright --- my favorite font) in Illustrator. They just got scrambled  
and had missing glyphs, etc. Using WarmReader fixed that up and I  
could change document fonts fairly easily too. I haven't tried  
LaTeXiT with Illustrator but my past experience with pdf from other  
good equation editors is that Illustrator re-maps the fonts and  
things are back to garbage.

Eventually I switched to Create for making figures and that works  
great. It also supports LinkBack so you can re-edit a label in  
LaTeXiT easily. I think I first heard about Create (part of Stone  
Studio Suite, from Stone Design <http://www.stone.com/>) from Gerben;  
decided to try it out and really like it.

Good Luck,
