Enter all the information asked for and it will tell you what stations you can expect to receive, how far away the towers are and in which direction, and what type of antenna you need.

– Don't want to mess with an antenna rotor, so looking at omni-directional, hoping that the height of my roof (I'm on high ground, to boot) will at least partially make up for the loss of gain with a directional antenna. SNIP

What AntennaWeb calls multi-directional (Small or Medium of which is what their form flagged most of my channels as calling for) is described as "...they receive equally well from all directions," and their diagrams on the same page indeed display an omni-directional reception pattern. But most of what the vendors call "multi-directional" look pretty directional to me, don't you think?
All good advice, guys, and many thanks. I guess I'm seeking someone who's had hands-on experience with the admittedly fine distinctions I'm making. (Or am I splitting hairs and over-thinking all this?)
