[font=trebuchet ms]Is there any difference between にしても and にしては? It seems like people are using them interchangeably, but I don't want to get caught out if it turns out that there are some situations where you have to use one and not the other :-\[/font]

You may want to hold out for Mysticfive or someone similarly informed to reply, but when I checked around I saw that there is a page that exists with both grammar structures included together. Here it is: http://www.renshuu.org/index.php?page=grammar/individual&id=260

Yeah, the nuance is different. にしては is essentially "for (an) X" or "given than X is true." (Examples with English translations here from Weblio, my favorite source for grammar clarifications.) X is a category in which the thing being discussed is an outlying example. にしても is more like "in spite of X" - you're qualifying the statement X with further detail. More examples here. If you're familiar with how ~ても works with normal verbs, this is essentially just an extension of that construction.

Appears to be the same. Not only that, but there are separate grammar questions for each one! I'll leave them separate for now because combining them will unfortunately make a mess of the grammar lessons they are part of.

thanks!, i'll be dropping these links in case someone else has the same question for the constructions.
