There doesn't seem to be any documentation on the difference between the two...

It might help if you can provide some context. Where are you seeing these terms?

Usually I see this when I create a node and decide whether or not to choose the Pedestrian Crosswalk or Street Crossing option in the panel on the left. (Just realized I meant Pedestrian Crosswalk, not Pedestrian Crossing).

I assume you're referring to the presets in iD. If that's the case, here are the tags that are applied by each preset:

Pedestrian Crosswalk: highway=crossing + crossing=zebra

Street Crossing: highway=crossing

These tags can be seen by selecting the preset and then expanding the "All tags" section.

That's interesting! I didn't know that "zebra" was a value for the "crossing" key. I thought it was only a value for the "crossing_ref" key?
