TV Technology: Plasma or LCD?

This has little to do with computers, but it is a question that comes up from time to time: what is the difference between plasma and LCD? I am always a bit caught off-guard because I am no TV afficianado, to say the least. Football and the weather channel with the odd movie once in a while pretty much comprises my TV diet.

Anyway, I did a search looking for a good informative article and found this one at cnet australia: Plasma vs. LCD: Which is right for you?

It sure cleared up some things for me such as the advantages/disadvantages of one over the other, high definition vs standard definition and so on.
