memcached vs squid

We use memcached for caching all sorts of good stuff at Spam Arrest, and it
works great for us. 


I have a new project coming up that is going to require caching, but rather
than just objects/data, I will probably be able to cache entire html


That said, I’m trying to decide between using memcached or squid in reverse
proxy mode for caching the pages. 


1.	internet -> squid -> webserver -> db 


2.	internet -> webserver -> memcached -> db


(well, not exactly, but you get the idea). 



Any opinions or stong arguments for one or the other?  I’ve used both
heavily in the past and can really think of pros/cons for either.
