Illustrator does provide the tools you need to save files so that all the
elements are in the RGB colorspace. Simply use cmd-A or ctrl-A to select
everything in your file, then select the Convert to RGB command from the
Filters>Colors sub menu. All of your CMYK colors will be converted to RGB.

We've heard the call from users that they need an easy way to ensure all
colors were in the CMYK space to prevent color shifts when printing. Hence
the CMYK Postscript check box option when saving as an EPS file. This is
the first I've heard of anyone requesting everything being converted to RGB
in an AI/EPS file. I'll see what I can do to make this easier in the future.

While we're on the topic of using Illustrator and Flash, if there is anyone
who would like to suggest other features to make the Illustrator / Flash
workflow easier I would be very interested in hearing them. Feel free to
