She has to be within a certain age range (maybe something like 14-18). She also has to be within a certain cuteness range. If she's too cute (large eyes, seemingly helpless and innocent), she's moe. If she's too elegant (longer limbs, flowing hair), too old, or not feminine enough, then she's not bishoujo.
Most of the female characters from Ef or Clannad would be examples of bishoujo.
