Hi Steve,

But there are more codes, like separation code, which can be placed in 
the middle of the label. Or maybe they aren't available in mkgmap? I 
have never used them.

Well, I have done more tests with nuvi. Devices perform search 
differently. My findings are following:
- My patches don't work in device.
- Mixed-index works in device.
- Mixed-index behaves similarly to City Navigator maps in Mapsource and 
in device.

I have tried mkgmap.jar, that you have provided, and compilation of 
current mixed-index branch. Both worked correctly in device. There is no 
easy partial search in Mapsource, like with my patch, but search in 
Mapsource is usable. If you write partial string, then Mapsource offer 
valid labes to choose from. Mixed-index works in BaseCamp too.

My conclusion is, that your solutions in mixed-index is correct (maybe 
it needs some cleaning, there is still test code active). I encourage 
users to make more tests.

Best regards,
