What's the difference between autism and Asperger's?

My understanding is that Asperger syndrome is a type of autism, but why do they usually go hand in hand?

Autism and Asperger's syndrome are both autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and pervasive development disorders (PDD). People diagnosed with any type of autism spectrum disorder are either social avoident or socially inappropriate. Asperger's Syndrome is considered to be "high-functioning."
