Now, I will go to the Finder to double-click that file to open it up in Illustrator CS5.

Note that the text is editable, just like it was in Flash. So let's say I wanted to change the logo to say KIDS cal instead of KIDS California. I can simply delete the 'afornia' from California to do that. So now it just says KIDS Cal. And you will notice that the vector art is editable, just like any other vector art in Illustrator. Now, I will save the file, File > Save, and then I can choose FXG Options in this dialog box before saving the file. Note that you can click the Show Code button to see the XML data for this file...
