Stuffing Vs. Dressing

Am I correct [ahem] to assume that stuffing is the breading that is stuffed into the bird, while dressing is the alternate - OUTSIDE the bird?

I have always followed a fine line of traditional family recipes where we referred to it as stuffing. But never dreamed of using the term "dressing" (of fear that it could be a concoction preceded by the words "Stove" & "Top").

I'm open for your enlightenment and recipes.
