Re: HYB:Re-Selects

"Guilded" vs. "Gilded"---interesting bit of etymological difference there.  I
had to chuckle a bit.

"Guild" is an association, from the late middle ages I think, of folks with
the same trade or sort of business.  So I would think "Guilded" would mean
someone who belonged to such a group--or at least something along that line,
like inducted into a sorority or fraternity kind of association.

"Gild-" on the other hand, is a spelling variation on "Gilt," "Gelt," or
"Gold"--so "Gilded" means covered with--or edged with--gold or glitter.

Just for fun.....
