What is the difference between stranded and solid Ethernet cables?

Stranded Ethernet cables are flexible and are often used as patch cables, short cables that are ideal for connecting a computer to a wall outlet or to a router.  Solid Ethernet cables are rigid but have better signal strength.  These cables are ideal for use behind walls and in longer cable runs.
