The and tags cover the exact same ground as near as I can tell by going through several pages of each. In any of the handful of languages I know, casting always deals with type. Is there a narrow situation where one could not be replaced with the other? (If so, we need to ferret those questions out and manually retag them.)

Even though (×928) is currently more popular than (×95), I prefer for some reason. Perhaps it's just a tad bit more explicit and conventional?

Could a moderator merge into ?

@Peter: I suggested it as a synonym for type-casting just before posting. :) –  Gnome Sep 18 '10 at 3:07
