I have an illustrator file which you can download from here: https://github.com/aristath/elusive-iconfont/blob/master/font/Elusive-Icons.svg

However Illustrator CS6 seems to open the file as being totally empty. Is there something wrong with the file? perhaps something I can edit before opening. Or is this just another bug with dealing with SVG in Illustrator?

Thanks very much

The file is not a valid SVG, which may be why AI/Inkscape/SVG Edit won't open it. I think this might answer your question: How do I use an SVG “icon font” within Illustrator? –  JohnB Sep 2 '13 at 17:45
