Significance of description of passe compose

Is there any significance in the website's use of "passe compose" in some cases and "Le Passe Compose (conversational past)" in other cases?

Bonjour Nigel, «le passé composé (conversational past)» and «passé composé» mean the same thing. «Le Passé Composé» is the more formal way to write «passé composé». During a discussion, either oral or written, it is not uncommon to simply use «passé composé» in explanations and discussions in lieu of the more formal form. Bonne chance et bonne continuation.

Ron, Hiya !! Many thanks! So, the answer is, there's no difference, and it's just a bit confusing the way the website uses them interchangeably with no explanation. Cheers!! NMO
