Creating functions: IS vs AS

I'm writing my first Oracle function (following the CREATE FUNCTION reference [1]) but I can't figure out what's the difference between IS and AS. This is what manual has to say about it:

IS | AS Clause

Use the appropriate part of this clause to declare the body of the function.

Any clue about what's appropriate? All I know is that IS works for me and AS doesn't, but I'd like to know their purpose.

I'm running Oracle 10g XE.
