On the floor separating two rooms in a home there is often a raised surface made of wood. What is it called?

@gollum,
It is my understanding that if you have a tiled area say in a bathroom or hallway to a kitchen, the separator is called a saddle (marble or other like material). If it's for a room area that might be going from a wood floor to another wood floor, it can be called a threshold.

@Ragman,
Perhaps it is regional? the only term I've ever heard/seen for that piece is threshold.
