Removed those mis-coded ones, and reversed the layers so that where google is "better" it shows as a blue ring round the osm ring now.

		I have taken Bernard's original visual comparison (location data) and Alex's scoring (numerical comparison) and produced a map to visualise the results of the comparison.
		The result can be seen at:

	Looks good... but...

		I have tried to remove any capitals that were mis-placed or incorrect, and obviously am using Alex's somewhat subjective metric.


	There still seems to be a problem in this regard... Singapore and St Helena seem to be part of Australia, The Cayman islands are in Malaysia? Montserrat and Bermuda seem to be part of New Zealand, Monaco in Germany etc...
