A steel book is the movie literally in a thin steel casing with some collectible items inside.
Steelbooks are really for the hardcore collectors hoping it'll be worth something someday...
For sure you can pick up Dark Knight DVD or Blu-Ray editions at futureshop!

99 times out of 100 the Steelbook is nothing more than different packaging.
Every once in a while there might be some extra content with that edition, but it's quite rare.
It's purely a cosmetic thing, and I would argue that it's not something people buy because they
think it's going to be "worth" something (especially since I generally TALK to people I sell them to)
but they buy them because they prefer the Steelbook Style and aesthetic over a plastic case.
There are people that hoard steelbooks because they think they can make big bank on (competitor) with them,
and in some cases it can happen, sure... but to answer your question, in the case of The Dark Knight,
the CONTENT is the exact same on the BluRay, Steelbook or non.
