Humm I'll wait until I get my hands on the OZie Govts 'Style Guide'..
However .. The UK does not look like a good guide as to what to do?
Saint Paul's Cathedral way 369161987 ...
has the name 'Saint Paul's Cathedral' (and has that name for over 2 years) .. surrounding features are named 'St Paul's" and others named 'Saint Paul's' .. rather inconsistent!
Are the signs there that inconsistent too?
There is also a suggestion to use short_name for the St abbreviation.
But I'll wait till I get the guide .. end of next week?
