[Q] "sign" vs "sign-locally"

I just realized that there are two ways of signing a key. You can "sign"=
it, or sign it it "locally". What's the difference?
If I understand correctly, your signing a key means that you are=20
confident that the key belongs to the person you think it does. So, for=20
instance, I could meet the person face-to-face and get his or her key ID=20
I've looked at the man page. I think that "sign" is what I just described=
in the above paragraph. But I'm not sure I understand how "sign-locally"=
Also, why would I ever want to sign a key "non-revocably"?
Thanks for the help.
