I work with a graphic designer who uses Illustrator (I assume a recent version) on a mac.  I then take his work and convert it into web pages.  I use Fireworks MX version 6.0

Opening the files on a pc using illustrator 10 sometimes gives some strange results such especially with fonts.  But I prefer to work in Fireworks and get very disappointing results opening, or copy and pasteing etc.  I wonder if anyone has come across the best way to save files in Illustrator so that they open accurately in Fireworks and keep fonts/paths/images.

Main problems are:
fonts - often the text comes over as paths, even Arial!
images - some images do not come over at all

Look forward to your comments.
