Milo,

Many thanks for your answer. I would be happy to get hold of the regarding
mapfile you are using. Must be a hell job to follow all the tag/values which
change all the time...

@Sven: Regarding the original thread topic I wonder which service is more
stable: the one http://tah.openstreetmap.org/MapOf/... or
http://dev.openstreetmap.org/~ojw/bbox... From the URL to me that the tiles
@ home - Project (tah...) would be the "official" one and
http://dev.openstreetmap.org/~ojw/bbox... is experimental, right?
