Functional differences between MS Access 2002 and 2003

I'm looking for a list of functional differences between A2002 and A2003.  I've learned a couple of things:

MDE's compiled in 2003 won't work in 2003.
They both use the 2000 file format.

Where might there be a list of the other differences, so I can avoid using those in 2003?    Or, at least, where are the areas of difference?

This is not a side-by-side comparison, but it lists features that were "new" with A2K3:

Not that much.  A2003 add Window Themed Controls (very cool) - but that will be ignored on an A2002 (aka XP) machine, so not a problem.

Also, I think (but not sure)

"MDE's compiled in 2003 won't work in 2003."

Huh ?

Is that true? depends on the references used.

if there were references used in the mde that are only available in 2003 and not in 2002 --- 100%  the mde will NOT work in 2002
