[mkgmap-dev] mkgmap and values with semicolon in it

From Felix Hartmann extremecarver at gmail.com on Thu Feb 24 21:35:10 GMT 2011

I think the best approach would be to cut values of any keys/tags but 
name and ref (or having "name" or "ref" as part of their key ) at the 
semicolon for the lines and polygons file.

As for the points file all values with ";" should be seperated and 
cloned. So for amenity=hotel;restaurant & name=abc create two POI one 
matching all rules of amenity=restaurant and the second matching all 
rules amenity=hotel.

Still everyone using semicolons should know that this tagging is 
potentially complicated and not usable and using semicolons is not good 
form of tagging.
