Q: White onions vs. yellow onions: Does using one or the other really make a difference in a recipe?

Editor: There are flavor differences between the two, as yellow onions are sweeter and white onions have more of a bite. Here's a post that goes more in-depth about their differences:
So if you can, use the onion that the recipe calls for, but if you only have one kind around, I'm of the opinion that it's okay to substitute to avoid a last-minute run to the grocery store.
Readers, what do you think?
