    Question What is the difference between "Continued" and "Continous"

    May I ask what is the difference in the following sentences:
    (1) I thank you for your friendship and best wishes for continued success.
    (2) I thank you for your friendship and best wishes for continuous success.
    Thank you.

    Welcome, albertino.

    (1) I thank you for your friendship and best wishes for continued success.

    (2) I thank you for your friendship and best wishes for continuous success.


    Note,
    a continuous sheet of ice; a continuous flow of water. Source
    Continue, endure, persist, persevere, last, remain imply
    existing uninterruptedly for an appreciable length of time. Source

    Does that help?
