    Interesting

    Is there any difference between the two following sentences:

    The area below the chat window is called whiteboard.

    and

    The area below the chat window is whiteboard.

    Re: Interesting

    In this case you have to put 'the' in.

    - is called( known as/referred to as) the whiteboard

    - is the whiteboard

    But not always;

    The area between the trenches is known as no-mans land (or is no-mans land but not the no-mans land)
    The area between the goals is the outfield. (but not outfield)
