Dear friends, help! Which word should I use: a TALL building/ a HIGH building? Different books give different rules. I am at a loss...

I think there is a difference in meaning, though that difference may not exist in all anglophone regions. A tall building would rise high into the sky, while a high building would be built in an area on a high altitude.
