Interesting, I don't think I had ever heard of a "normal" ICD as being a T-ICD. Overall it does give a clear description of the differences. I still prefer the good old ICD.

ridiculous how many names the marketing wienies can come up with to sell their products. Reminds me of Intel. They used so many acronyms in their business they published a 400 page book of acronym definitions for employees and suppliers to use. Bottom line, an ugly duckling is still a prince...
