Upgrade or full version of XP Home?

Can someone explain the difference between - in this case - the upgrade and full version of XP? I've just formatted my hard drive and plan to install XP Home version. I assume that the upgrade only works if installed over an existing version of a Windows OS (in my case Me) and since an upgrade is half the price of the full version, should I re-install Me and then upgrade to XP straightaway on a relatively clean drive? Or should I pay extra and get the full version?However, will the upgrade version work if at some stage I have to format my hard drive again and need to re-install XP?
