        George's approach is a good idea.  You might wish to look for strong
interactions between
        Characters within the matrix, as well.  This occurs in nature all
the time, where 2 (or more) characters interact to give a result that is
different from any one character alone.
        I wonder if anyone has ever run a JMP (Microsoft data analysis
software) on data like this?
        I bet it would work or at least provide some interesting insights.
