Warning: Outdated Terminology

To my knowledge, Asperger Syndrome is known to be a mild form of Autism, but some people say the word "Severe Asperger". My question, what does it mean exactly and is it another term for some people with Autism Spectrum Disorder level 3, but function well in society?

I just don't understand what "Severe Asperger" is, as all Pervasive Developmental Disorders are just ASD with different levels of severity.
