In the conventional representations, do you separate things that are in the liquid and then the aqeuous phase (or vice versa) by a line or a comma?

"|" represents the boundary between the two phases, and "||" represents the salt bridge.
Comma, ",", separates substances in the same phase

Bertybassett This answer from BobbJo summarises the convention nicely

Care to show an example?

I can't think of any half-cells that have liquids and aqueous phases in contact ...

"Something in a liquid" : if the liquid is water, and the something is dissolved in the water, then this is aqueous phase too. If this is the case then your textbook's comma is separating two species in aqueous solution, i.e. two things in the same phase.
