Hey Jeff.... getting back to the rendering...

selected the PAL DV widescreen template
selected .avi file format
clicked on the Video Format drop-down menu.... and couldn't find any codec with a = sign next to it.

this is what I see:

Vegas 9e

I think I see what you mean now....
I see the = near the PAL DV template... so should I use that?

By the way I made a couple of test renders using PAL DV and DivX. Both look pretty much the same, possibly the PAL DV version looks a bit better. The PAL DV file is much larger, but size doesn't matter much to me.

So would this be my best bet?

I was sure that DV compression is pretty harsh and since the source material is not DV, but rather mpeg2 from a DVD - that it wouldn't make any sense re-compressing it to DV.... or is that not what is happening?

The = sign means it is the best fit of the avi templates. I would use the one that looks best. I'm not sure what you mean exactly on the rest. avi files are very usable, and I would go with that if size is unimportant.
