comment Create Illustrator Smart Object From INSIDE Photoshop
That's true, but the question was about creating an Illustrator SO, which can't be done from within Photoshop. A PS vector object turned into a SO will open in PS, not in AI.

comment Why do some letters look odd at 100% but not 200%?
"It's a PDF artifact" -- I wish I had a dollar for every time I've said that to a client!

comment Direct select Layer (PS)
Perhaps there's something I'm not getting. I fired up CS4 specifically to check this. If I Ctl-click on an item that's inside a layer group, the group folder opens with that layer selected in the Layers panel. I don't have CS2 or CS3 installed right now, so I can't check that, but CS4, CS5 and CS5.1 all work exactly the same way.

comment Colouring illustrations - RGB or CMYK?
As the OP points out, there are many filters, including the entire "Filter Gallery" and Pixelbender sets, that aren't available in CMYK.
