I just noticed a few strange things in the wiki page Highway=footway
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dfootway>

In the first example:
" foot=designated (designed to footway)"
which has two defects:

   - "designated" does not mean "designed for"
   - foot=designated on highway=footway is redundant (compare with the
   statement in the side box "implies foot=designated"

In the second example

   - foot=yes is redundant
   - cycleway=* is not the correct (tagging of a combined foot-cycleways is
   done differently)

In the third example

   - cycleway=* is not the correct (tagging of a combined foot-cycleways is
   done differently)
   - footway=crossing on way (C) is missing
   - the kerb (C2) does not go on the shared node of sidewalk and crossing
   footway, but only on the crossing footway
   - crossing=* nd crossing_ref go on the on the crossing point, i.e. node
   (C1) and not on the crossing way (C)

In general:

   - the language is bump
   - the illustrations could be bigger
