I haven't replied to a YAEPT thread in so long...!   I can indulge
just once, right?

<<Hmm.  Judging by Mark's post, I'd say the two might be in free variation
across most dialects.>>

In my dialect, the [T] is definitely *not* interdental, and there is no such
sound as [D], as it's been replaced by a dental stop (probably only 
voiced, like all the rest of the voiced stops in English), giving people like
myself the following inventory:

[T], [t], [t_h], [t_d], as in "thigh", "die", "tie", and "thy".

(I hope that [_d] is X-SAMPA for dental...)
