[mkgmap-dev] [Patch] Default Style change handling of road refs

Hi Carlos,

thanks for your version. I like that as well.
Your proposed additional rule would not work, I think it could be
highway=* & ref=* & highway!=motorway & highway!=trunk & highway!=primary & highway!=secondary & highway!=tertiary { addlabel '${ref}' }
If I got that right we have java code which eliminates a duplicate ref which just differs in highway shield but this rule
allows the style to add one more label if the road also has different values in int_ref, nat_ref etc.

I'd prefer to display highway shields if the road has a ref, rather than
name. See attached patch. Note that with both proposed patches the line
highway=* & ref=* { addlabel '${ref}' }
would add a duplicate entry to index for mayor roads having a ref.
Perhaps it should be changed to
(highway!=motorway | highway!=trunk | highway!=primary |
highway!=secondary | highway!=tertiary) & highway=* & ref=* { addlabel
'${ref}' }
