What's the consensus on this reference work? The hardback edition came out in 2001, and the "New Edition" paperback in 2005 -- is there any significant difference in content between the two?

Update -- I called Oxford, and was told there is no difference in content between the two editions. Here's even better news: while the hardcover edition retails for $65.00, amazon.com is currently offering it for $24.47. I recently received my copy, and it really is worth the investment, especially for those (like me) who are fairly new to the study of Shakespeare's plays.
