I know that this existed for Google and Yahoo maps, it's cool to see that for OSM as well.

That is fantastic! I am impressed, our maps look so much better with that background :-). Is there a special reason, that e.g. osma doesn't produce transparent tiles by default (we could than underlay those relief tiles as well)? That would make the output even prettier.

Well done, Jochen
