I'm not certain, but my guess is that the outer jacket/insulation for
outdoor rated cable is thicker and has better UV protection.
Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_5_cable#Environmental_ratings)
says something about UV protection.  Without knowing the real answer,
I treated it as extra "insurance" against having to rerun the cable in
the future...
