Dimensional differences between Weaver-style and Picatinny bases???

I have a 2 piece Ed Brown tactical base that is listed as fitting Weaver style rings as well as Mark4 rings (p/n: 52083) listed as being Weaver style, but can I mount Picatinny spec rings to a Weaver style base? The base looks just like picatinny rail but what are the differences in mounting surface, angle of the sides, slot spacing and so on?

    This discussion of Weaver vs Picatinny is on Brownell's site. I think it sum up the situation pretty well:
