On very winding roads, how would you orientate the labeling? Part of it has always the wrong orientation.

Nevertheless, I've done a small improvement of my scripts. If you insert the folowing code, then the direction is selected automatically. If the selection was bad, then you can inverted the automatic selection with the tag naming_direction.

				<xsl:when test='(tag[@k="name_direction"]/@v="-1" or tag[@k="osmarender:nameDirection"]/@v="-1")
					!= (key("nodeById",key("segmentById",seg[1]/@id)/@from)/@lon < key("nodeById",key("segmentById",seg[last()]/@id)/@to)/@lon)'>
