I have used pZErO-1, which has zeocin (Invitrogen's own antibiotic)
resistance.  The vector gives very low background, as promised, but zeocin is
crap!  It is salt sensitive and light sensitive, and it only lasts about 1
week at 4 degrees.  In other words, its a pain in the ass to work with. 
Their pZErO-2 (Kan resistance) might be better.
