Pill woodlouse or Pill Millipede

Having looked at the Woodlouse on Ispot I am confused.I am sure some one will enlighten me hopefully in simple terms.They look similar to me when curled up.

The easiest way I find to

The easiest way I find to tell them apart when rolled up is that the pill woodlice have more segments in their head and tail and the millipedes have just the single one. The millipedes also look shiner and the ball is not as symmetrical as the woodlice.
