We use PCR primers made from the sequence shown in the NEB catalogue. It shows
about 100(?) bases with the RI site in the middle. Instead of using the 
primers they suggest we designed our own with both starting from the first
(and last!) base shown.
I think they were about 20 bases long. Can't remember off hand.
For sequencing, we made primers about 10-15 bases inside the PCR primers.
We use these to sequence cDNA clones. They work perfectly. (well, almost :-) )
If you like, E-mail me and I'll send you the sequence of our oligos.

BTW We use one primer biotinylated in the PCR so we can sequence it directly.
e.g. F+BIO and R. Another tube with F and R+BIO.

Hope this helps,

Kryten (When Cat says why don't we raise the defensive shields?) "A superlative
suggestion sir,with only two drawbacks: one,we don't have any defensive shields
and two,we don't have any defensive shields.I know that,technically,that's only
one drawback,but it was such a big one I thought I'd mention it twice".
