Dear Anne,

igraph assigns no prescribed semantics to edge weights, they are just numbers. 
Some of the igraph methods interpret them as distances (e.g., the shortest path 
functions), others interpret them as similarities (e.g., the community 
detection functions). So, it all depends on which functions you are planning to
