This is from the Food Lover's Companion, there doesn't seem to be much of a difference except one is strained:

Broth: A liquid resulting from cooking vegetables, meat or fish in water. The term is sometimes used synonymously with bouillon.

Stock: In the most basic terms, stock is the strained liquid that is the result of cooking vegetables, meat or fish and other seasoning ingredients in water. A brown stock is made by browning bones, vegetables and other ingredients before they're cooked in the liauid. Most soups begin with a stock of some kind, and many sauces are based on reduced stocks.
Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.

Stock tends to be made more from bony parts. Broth is made more out of meat. Stocks develop a fuller mouth feel and richer flavor as a result of the gelatin being released by long simmering or roasting of bones.

Now days people use these terms incorrectly, IMHO. I define stock as being the main flavor building foundation of a dish by the use of bones. To me, broth is the liquid in a soup. Very different things.
