I raised this issue in 2005 and afaict there has been no progress.
openstreetmap provides data through for instance Mapnik in SVG format.
Scalable Vector Graphics is a web technology and standard now well
supported in browsers.
Current output is not searchable, see link for example.
This has significant implications for accessibility, interoperability
XSLT is another browser-native technology that may be used to
transform XML to for instance SVG,
or might for instance be leveraged in the browser to provide a
gazetteer of place names.
please advise who else might help openstreetmap incorporate place
names in SVG output dissemination.
