Default No Wake ? Min Wake ? ( what speeds are they ? )

I been looking on the FWC website and I cant find the answer as to speeds pertaining to NO WAKE and MIN WAKE. To me, the answers are vague. Anyone know if there are certain speeds for each ?
( The following is copied from their website )


Any vessel operating in a speed zone posted as "Idle Speed - No Wake" must operate at the minimum speed that allows the vessel to maintain headway and steerageway.

Any vessel operating in a speed zone posted as "Slow Down - Minimum Wake" must operate fully off plane and completely settled in water. The vessel's wake must not be excessive nor create a hazard to other vessels.

my understnding was no wake meant just that no wake or idel speed only.
minumum wake i would guess to be no white wash behind the boat with smaller wake ok?
