What is the difference between a UV filter and a Skylight 1A filter?

A UV filter is basically just a piece of glass.

A skylight filter has a small amount of tint -- as the product description on a Quantaray filter states:

The Skylight filter corrects for bluish light quality of open shade but most people use it to protect their lens from dust and scratches. Will also absorb ultra violet rays without affecting exposure.

Here is another good comparison page.
