One solution I've seen advanced is that the ref in that case is just 12. But that rather raises more new questions than it answers, because while no one says "I'm going to take the Highways England A3400" or "the British A3400", people do say "I'm going to take County Road 12"... --Jarek _______________________________________________ Tagging mailing list Tagging@openstreetmap.org https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/tagging
