What's the difference between alstublieft and alsjeblieft and how do you know when to use which? I'd be grateful for any help. Thanks.

You might find it easier if you break it down into its constituent words: als-je-blieft (if you please) and now you can see why there are formal and informal forms, like French s'il vous plait /s'il tu plait.
