Primer design in Gap4

   When designing primers within the Contig Editor, a score value is listed
in the Output Window along with GC, Tm, and length.  What does that score
mean?  When I started using Gap4, I just used the first primer that was
chosen.  Now that I noticed the score values, I've been using primers with
the highest scores.  However, those primers have not been working.  Am I
doing something wrong?  Thanks.
