Yes: name-tag-list defines the precise name tag to use for a given object and so interacts with any style rules that match that object and also use the name tag for labelling purposes. > Does this mean that I need to have an adapted stylesheet because of the > name-tag-list? Any other options? There's no easy answer if you're making a global map that has to have some sort of consistency. This is the first time that I've seen an operator:en tag and there's no way to account for it using --name-tag-list. The only way to fix it is to use a modified style rule that uses operator:en in preference for operator. This could be a change to the mkgmap default style, but if you do it for fuel you'd really have to do it for all rules to avoid a special case. Preferable would be for the --name-tag-list code to be made more generic so that it applies to any tags, not just name. >> Unfortunately, as I understand it Lambertus is keen to stick with the >> default style. >> > Correct, it seems to me that maintaining a stylesheet takes quite some > time, time which is a scarce commodity.
