<p>Wherever we are displaying tags, if the tags have multiple consecutive spaces, we're not displaying this at all. They get spat out in the HTML as space characters, but obviously browsers then ignore this, and display it as a single space. That's a (minor) problem, because users (or mappers who might fix this tagging issue) can't really see consecutive spaces very easily.</p>
<p>Currently there's an example here with lots of consecutive spaces in a name: <a href="http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/6199771">http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/6199771</a></p>
<p><a href="https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/227525/20923392/17dd7a2a-bba4-11e6-9328-2d741603cc6f.png" target="_blank"><img src="https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/227525/20923392/17dd7a2a-bba4-11e6-9328-2d741603cc6f.png" alt="screen shot 2016-12-06 at 11 03 10" style="max-width:100%;"></a></p>
<p>but this applies to any tag, not just names, and to any number of space characters greater than 1. It also applies to any tag display, so even if somebody fixes the above example, we'll still see the problem lower down on this page: <a href="http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/6199771/history">http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/6199771/history</a></p>
