second-hand, I'd agree with you.
The Yuri entry in Wikipedia isn't bad, at the moment. There was a short period
when someone who knew nothing started talking about Kanazuki no Miko as
the quintessential yuri anime, but that's been corrected. ;-)

Shounenai is an outdated term. It was, for a while, used to mean stories of
"boys in love". Shounen=boy, ai=love.
Now the preferred term is "Boy's Love" in English. :-)
Yaoi was the common term for the genre in between the two.
You can find a reasonably up to date glossry of common (and less so) anime
and manga terms on the Onna! website: http://www.onnafest.com (I referenced
the exact page in my snarky comment to Craig, but don't have time to find it
at this moment..)
