how some signs are used in bibliography / templates ?

There are som signs in the template of bibliography just like small diamond and vertical seperator. One of them is seperator I think but I do not know the other one.  How should we use these signs while changing  or rearranging the template?

Re: how some signs are used in bibliography / templates ?

The tiny diamonds are called "link adjacent" and are used to connect the spaces and punctuation to a field.  When the field is absent, those spaces are excluded from the output.  They are used in conjuction with the separation "lines" to isolate those attached punctuation and link adjacent spaces.  I have never quite figured out when they are important and when they are redundant as long as they are between separation characters.
