I am trying to export a map from ArcMap to be edited in Illustrator CS5.  The attached image is an example of what the map looks like when opened in Illustrator.  Notice the difference in road sign symbols. [ATTACH=CONFIG]23388[/ATTACH]

Here is what I've tried so far to solve the issue:
Changed the dpi to 1440, 3000 etc.
Exported with the sign symbols as annotations as well as labels. 
Turned all other layers off before export
Reloaded the layers, relabeled and exported again

This has happened when exporting to both .ai, .pdf, .svg

I would appreciate any advice someone can offer.  Thank you!
