[mkgmap-dev] address unknown?

Thanks Charlie

In theory,it should be possible to 'render' any tag . So, walking/cycling
around you should be able to see as a label any addresses contained in an
osm file.
I had in  mind addresses not attached to any 'object',ie shop, cafe etc.

These are just nodes with an addr tag, there are hundreds of them around my
area - I agree such 'blind' tags need a type reference.

It seems to imply that addresses without a specific type reference,
EVENTHOUGH they are rendered in mapnik ,can not be 'shown' in say Mapsource.

Perhaps a work around perhaps,is  to parse the osm file and replace addr:
etc with 'place' before using mkgmap?
