Hi, Koh Elaine.

Your statements are the same.

"In meaning" is a completely unecessary prepositional phrase since "difference" already implies both things.
When you say "difference" and "between sentences", you are impling what the differences in meaning are. If not differences of meanings, then what other differences would you be talking about?

As You Know says, your second sentence is just more specific. Prior context might show you mean you were looking for spelling differences etc., but usually when the question is asked by itself, meaning is assumed.

Digression - I assume there were just two sentences when you used "between"? Or is that another distinction that has gone by the way when I wasn't looking?
