I downloaded all of the files in the Osmarender Subversion repository (see <br><a href="http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Osmarender/Howto#Download_the_software">http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Osmarender/Howto#Download_the_software
</a> ) and there are a few scripts there for post-processing the svg file created by Osmarender. The one called osm-svg-beautifier.pl chooses to abbreviate or simply leave out the names of ways when they are very short.<br>
<br>It also uses bezier curves to smooth out the ways, making your maps look even nicer.<br><br>- Lachlan<br><br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 8/6/07, <b class="gmail_sendername">Brent Easton</b> <<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">

The bridges are all seperate ways with bridge=yes, layer=1.
<br><br>Osmarender is naming each short bridge section with the highway name and reference number and it looks just plain bad. Is there a tag to hint to the renderer to not display the name of a way?<br><br>I would prefer not to remove the name from the way as maplint/validator complains and it doesn't seem right. The same problem applies to roundabouts where Osmarender writes the highway name around the roundabout.
