cell diagram question

Pb(s)|Ni^3+,Ni^2+,H^+(aq)||I^2+(aq)|I(s)|Pb(s)
In this case, should the solids on the right side also have a comma inside of a line like the aqueous on the left?

You use lines when you have a state change an commas when you have a charge change I think.

Yes I and Pb should be separated by commas
