I always used the two words interchangeably, but my grandmother used to call it "dinner" if it was ready by 5pm or so, and "supper" if it was eaten any later than that. So I'm not sure if that was just her point of view or if it was a common definition. My household has a lot of funny words for meals, because I work days and my husband works nights, so we're always saying things like "breakinner" and because it's his breakfast and my dinner, or vice versa.
