Fill or Opacity, what is the difference?

Hi there, I am new to retouch Pro. I have never known what the difference is between adjusting the fill or opacity sliders on adjustment/ layers. Perhaps I'm blind but they seem to do pretty similar things. Can anyone explain the difference?

Thanks

Stephen

Basically opacity controls everything on the layer. Fill controls everything but the layer styles (shadows, stroke, bevel emboss, etc.)
