Any Experts to explain the meaning of Default Networks in the routing tables below:

I see "*"  next to C* and D*
what does that mean ?

Thank you

R2#sh ip route connected 
Codes: L - local, C - connected, S - static, R - RIP, M - mobile, B - BGP
       D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area 
       N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2
       E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2
       i - IS-IS, su - IS-IS summary, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2
       ia - IS-IS inter area, * - candidate default, U - per-user static route
       o - ODR, P - periodic downloaded static route, + - replicated route

Gateway of last resort is not set

      192.168.12.0/24 is variably subnetted, 2 subnets, 2 masks
C        192.168.12.0/24 is directly connected, FastEthernet1/0
L        192.168.12.2/32 is directly connected, FastEthernet1/0
 *    192.168.23.0/24 is variably subnetted, 2 subnets, 2 masks
C*       192.168.23.0/24 is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
L        192.168.23.2/32 is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
