Just this afternoon I ordered a coke, and received a Coke. Local 
restaurants here will tell us if their product is Pepsi, rather than 
Coke. At that point I just smile and say "as long as its cola-based, 
caffeinated and sweetened" it's fine with me.

Personally, I find all the diet-cola products to be taste 
abominations. I'd rather drink a diet orange or other fruit-flavored 
soda (my generic term for carbonated beverages). YMMV.
