"Digital vs. "High Def"....

...There seems to be a great deal of confusion around here about these two terms (not unlike "healthy" and "low calorie" in the world of dieting....no, Virginia, they're not synonymous!). I'm pretty sure I understand the difference(s) but it might be helpful i some technically minded poster could post something briefly explaining that the two terms are really entirely independant.
High def is not digital and, more to the point, digital does NOT mean that what you're watching is necessarily "high def."
