Generally the best way to find out, etc., is to bite the bullet and do actual
INTERVIEWS. You'll get much more complete and candid responses if they don't
have to write it down. Remember that most people, unlike us'ns, suffer a bit
of intimidation when they're asked to WRITE something. I've used phone
interviews to good effect.
You just prepare the same kind of questionnaire you would for a mail poll,
and work from that. suepstewrt -at- aol -dot- com
