#beginquote# toonz is right - there is no difference in the note itself. It's all about aesthetics. I think the standard is: any note at C or above (treble clef) should have the flag going down, and B or below should have the flag going up. This standard mostly applies to when you just have one note, i.e. a melody line. But if you have chords, like in piano music, you'll see that they don't always follow this standard because 1) it looks better to keep the flags of a chord all going in the same direction, and 2) they have to deal with both the treble and bass clef at the same time. #endquote#
