Re: Roman numerals

I favor eliminating all Roman numerals as abbreviations. The disadvantages far outweigh any advantages. Pronunciation of "XIV" can be addressed when the pronunciation of "Louis" is addressed.

Another proposal in another thread addressed this; I'm pretty sure you were there.

Having the period is good. I couldn't say what is usual, though. I've not seen Conn that I recall. So I think CT is the usual. NY, DC, NJ, and NC, are prevalent.

I'm assuming this is a known bug/naming problem with the spacing but today i was told to stay right onto us-280 instead of U.S. I *think* it was this ramp:

You need to have spaces on both sides of the slash characters, per the naming guidelines.

Figured it was something simple like that. That's hopefully fixed now. Thanks :D

I noted others in the area, too. You'll probably be going around fixing a bunch now?

Later today or tomorrow. Ah, the editing never ends. Also, hopefully they are all level 3 or below segments.

I can imagine that if you have not enough space for an updated apk, the application is short of space for putting TTS files too.

In my humble opinion, "N St" should be "North St". In this case it's the name not a prefix or suffix!
