My wife and I are eligible for and max out a Roth IRA account every year, but my wife's company added a Roth 401(k) option to her retirement savings options this month.

Two questions:

1) Does contributing to a Roth 401(k) in any way subtract from the $5,000 per year contribution she is allowed to make to the Roth IRA or are they unrelated?

2) Anyone have opinions (good or bad) on contributing to both a Roth 401(k) and Roth IRA instead of the traditional methods?

Thanks for the help,
