What is / are the fundamental difference(s) between Icon and Tag markers?
Asides from where they appear in a topic what is the difference between an icon marker and tag marker?
Is there any advantage of using one over the over in particular situations and if so, then could you supply a list (exhaustive or otherwise) of what those situations might be.
Icons should be used to give immediate & easy visual context with universally recognisable symbols
Tags should be used to convey more complex or nuanced contexts that an icon could not immediately convey with a recognisable symbol.
Is that it? Icons are universally recognisable symbols and where there isn't one that can convey the context needed then create and use tag markers?
Thanks in advance
