Getting Illustrator-made symbols into ArcMap

I would like to take symbols/icons that I created in Illustrator then export them into ArcMap for use in map production. If this question is already answered, could you direct me to that resource?

Mapping Center Answer:

You should export each of your Illy symbols/icons to a .EMF file and those can be used to create Picture Marker Symbols in ArcMap.  Our help topic on Creating Marker Symbols explains how to create picture markers from EMF files; it's the next to the last procedure in that topic.
