Hi

Andy,
  it seems that now the empty space in the middle is
not escaped properly.


Thanks for the report, just fixed this.

 BTW, where does this name database come from? I have
found some


OpenStreetMap is using the worldKit geocoder - http://brainoff.com/geocoder/
The names db comes from the GEOnet Names Database

very interesting old names with exact lat/long data.
 Can the database be extended by the OSM users ?


Not yet, but it is planned - http://www.openstreetmap.org/trac/ticket/5

Unfortunately, there is no support for non-ascii
utf-8 searches.

The GNS database only contains ascii. Plan is to remove diacritics from characters, prior to lookup.

-Mikel
