Your term is more correct.  This is why Cisco calls them "frames"
instead of "packets".  Once your packet has moved down the stack to
layer 3 it is "framed" (or "wrapped") in the Internet Protocol.

And I'd just like to say that all of you guys are sooooo picky.  I
mean, why can't I follow 2 of the 3 steps in the scientific process
and get credit?

Step 1:  Observe a phenomenon
Step 2:  Form a hypothesis
Step 3:  Produce a test that proves your prediction accurate <== I
skipped this clearly unimportant part

Hey, it works for the man-is-to-blame-for-global-warming scientists.

1: The earth is warming (it has warmed 9/10ths of 1 degree in the last
100 years).
2: Theorize that the CO2 man produces (about 3% of the total amount in
the atmosphere) is to blame.
3: Demand concenus about your hypothesis without producing a test that
proves your theory.

I'm mearly following in the footsteps of intellectual giants.

It's a good thing this whole thread is marked OT ;-).
