Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

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?
