Black's common reply  

Against the marked approach Black's diagonal response at B1 is simple, and good for territory. Now White at W2 can be considered still to be the standard answer, but extending as far as a is increasingly seen in pro play, for a lighter position. The result in the diagram is locally considered good for Black, but White normally plays this approach when a black pincer on the top side would profit black even more.

The difference between W2 and White a needs further elaboration.
