What’s the difference between tasks and milestones?

In essence, tasks may span over time. A task has a start date and end date and is marked as a percentage completed. You can group tasks and milestones within a parent task by simply dragging and dropping another task or milestone in to it. To keep thing from getting a little out of control you can have one level of grouping. Were a milestone, is checkbox-like, with a single date that is assigned to it. For simplicity and robustness only tasks can act as parents for grouping of tasks and milestones.
