[OSM-talk] Postcode searches in Namefinder

One more thing: UK postcodes have spaces in them: searching for "OX13ld" 
won't work as it won't recognize it as a UK postcode. You need
"OX1 3LD".

However that particular example doesn't work anyway because the 
"address" it tries to find is not helpful. It thinks the word 
"Scientist" is a street name (which it could be, of course) in the 
address lookup, for which it gets in full "First Church of Christ, 
Scientist, Oxford, OX1 3LD"
