    In Illustrator, I would split the path into 2 parts, top and bottom.
    Use the scissors tool to cut on the left and right side points of the
    ellipse. Then the text tool will let you put text on the path, center
    it, etc. You can slide it around with by the "I" bar insertion point.

    Same for the text on the bottom, but you used to be able to
    double-click on it to get it flipped around the right way. Now ytou
    have to go to Type>Type on a Path>Type on a Path Options and click on
    "Flip".

    No need to use the scisssors. Type the top text copy the whole circle and
    text, paste it up front, and drag on the I beam the top one down under.

    Dragging the I beam up will flip the text to the bottom inside also. Use one
    of the options in the Character Palette to lower it down so the top touches
    the circle and everythinmg is symmetrical.
