It's one of those days. You see those marks "+", "A+" in the Summary

but are too lazy to look up what they mean (in (info "(gnus) Other
Marks") etc.).

No worry, C-u C-x = (what-cursor-position) will tell you:

 There are text properties here:
   face                 gnus-summary-high-unread
   gnus-number          31074

Ahhh... alas it could tell you more!

And, on (info "(gnus) Other Marks") it could say "You can also just use
C-u C-x = to figure out what any mark mentioned here means, without
needing to read this page."

P.S., regarding "+", that info page says

   • When using the Gnus agent (*note Agent Basics::), articles may be
     downloaded for unplugged (offline) viewing.  If you are using the
     ‘%O’ spec, these articles get the ‘+’ mark in that spec.  (The
     variable ‘gnus-downloaded-mark’ controls which character to use.)

Well I am not using Gnus agent, and my .gnus.el has no %O or even O in
it. Thus it would be great if what-cursor-position told me what "+" meant.
