When do we use commas in a cell diagram vs. a horizontal line?

Professor Lavelle used a single horizontal line to represent the interface between phases in contact with each other (including a porous disc/wall) and a double horizontal line to represent the salt bridge.

EDIT: a comma is used when the oxidized and reduced species are in the same phase.

According to the textbook, one vertical line represents interface between two phases, two vertical lines represents a salt bridge, and a comma is used to separate species in the same phase.
