Hello, WR-L-ers,

Iâm sure that there must be a preferred or more grammatically correct version, but the following seem to mean the same thing when used after an introductory sentence that describes two different behaviors, and then I want to describe something that the two behaviors have in common:

* In either case, blah-blah-blah.
* In both cases, blah-blah-blah.

Got any thoughts, tips, pointers to accepted grammar references?
