.223 v 5.56 Nato. The difference being...?

As the title suggests.

I'd always thought that these two cartridges were the same, just with different names. However, some bits of literature infer that there is a difference because a rifle "can fire both".

It can't be the case or bullet calibre, so what is it? Power/Pressure?

Karma. Another word for revolver: because what goes around, comes around!
