Will an XD chip fit in an SD camera?

Greetings,

I am thinking of buying a Nikon coolpix camera, which has an SD chip inside it. My previous camera uses an XD chip. I presume they are not interchangeable, but hope springs eternal!

I am in the process of finishing off the attic, so naturally there must be insulation surrounding future living space.

After buying a 1930 colonial with cast iron radiators, I insulated it top to bottom: ceiling, walls, floors. Each year saw a different part of the house getting insulated. And, each year had my wife...
