Thank you, both. It's been driving me semi-nuts every time I go to a
lumber store and ask for it. Either thing I ask for, the sales clerk
calls it the other! I really do prefer to use the proper terms, when I
know them (and can remember them). I suspected it was something like that
but no one ever had an answer for me when I'd ask him/her what the other
was like. (Yes, I've actually asked what the difference was with no
answer.) It's good to finally know.
