Yes, it's commented out.
${name|prefix:ele} , i have already tried before. Yes it works. BUT ONLY if you use it as single magic
code. Actually it seems to be impossible to use more than a single code in style definition.

>>>/ but as it is well known we could just support something like the following:
/>>>/ highway=* {name '${ref|highway-symbol:oval}~[0x1f]${name}'
/>>/ Sorry, but this only writes "~[0x1f]" in the img and this will be shown as plain text in the label.

It's surely only a small step closer to a perfect garmin img file out of osm-data, but maybe people
will find it a little nice enhancement if they can use the full magic garmin codes.
And if its really rather easily to implement it ...

Anyway thanx for your support.
