"Resolution" means what?

When protein structures are reported and stored in the PDB, they
are usually accompanied by statements such as: "The structure was resolved
at 2.2 Angstroms" etc.
What does this resolution mean? For example, does it mean that
all atoms are within 2 Ang of the reported coords? Or is this like a
+/- 2 standard deviation limit?
So, what is the technical definition of "resolution" of the xtal
structure? I would appreciate any help in pointing me to some refs.
Since I do not follow this group very carefully, I would appreciate
email answers to: gulu at bu.edu
Thank you much,
