Green Fluorescent Protein

We have been thinking of making construct using Green Fluorescent Protein
(GFP) as a marker instead of LacZ.  The reference for this is - Science
263: pp. 802-805 (Feb. 1995).  Before going forward with this, I would
like to ask if anyone has experience with GFP which they would be willing
to share.  Ie. is it as good as a marker gene as it sounds?  We would want
to use it for detection of expression in preimiplantation embryos using
fluorescence microscopy. 

Thanks for your help.
