First I want to say thank you Immanuel, I can finnaly use åäöñâé, I
can't copy and paste though (otherwise I could have tested ブリーチ as

Ok kind of interesting to use. When you click on the applet a window
comes up and with the fields name and type. The name field is where
you put the name of the Street (this actually wasn't obvious to me,
says more about me than anything else), and the type field is what
kind of road it is.

I don't think the "type" field works, it's to hard to figure out what
a minor road is. No offense Andy, but it's to abstract for my Swedish
little brain. Perhaps if there is either a visual feedback or an
description text for each type.


Minor: one lane & speed limit 10km/h - 30 km/h
Secondary one lane &  speed limit ~60 km/h
