William,

Thanks for that link; it was an interesting read.  I
guess that what the correct terminology is really
depends on who you talk to.  Personally, I'm still
trying to figure all this out myself.  I purchased two
boxes of disks from Athana that are clearly labled
"Double-Sided, Double-Density, 96 TPI".  So according
to what you quoted above, either these disks are
mislabled, or there's just two different ways to say
the same thing...  Po-tay-to, po-tah-to...  ;-)
