Without entering into an extensive political debate, this is what I was
taught (in Canada) as well. I understood that the goal of "Ms." was to make
it as generic as "Mr.", thus reducing gender discrimination, etc. "Miss" and
"Mrs" are not really in my vocabulary, unless I'm using them ironically.

Debbie: Use *Ms,* which doesn't denote marital status at all. About the
only time anyone would need to use *Miss* is when they are talking about
Miss Piggie.
