What is the difference between MyISAM and INNODB?

P: 1
I am creating a web application to be used by 20-30 users inside a company. MySQL Is our database store. Which storage engine should I use?

MyISAM or INNODB?

What are the pro's and cons?
Which is the standard and most likely used?

Our data is mission critical as it's customer and transaction data for purchases and sales. We'd like a stable system.

"Our data is mission critical"

Hire someone who KNOWS the difference (and can spell MyISAM correct)

Hire someone who can Google for this answer, because it's given in the manuals (RTFM)

P.S. The answer is: use InnoDB
