While voting on the three techniques challenge, I wondered what the main differences are between this two techniques.
Is it correct to say that every high key is a light on white, but not the other way around?

Light on white refers to a white or bright colored subject, while high key is possible with a dark subject, too. In "Light on white" the challenge is to avoid blown areas (in the subject), while high works well when they are there. Just my 0.02 .

I'd say more the opposite; true light-on-white is pretty much by definition high key, but you can have high key with, for example, a yellow background...
