    I would add some words but, I could only add the English. Like most other ignorant Americans I'm a single language type.

      I posted the file as a csv file as it is universally understood and is not a proprietary format like excel . For those interested in free exchange of ideas and information I suggest the following link. I would suggest to post each update as an excel as well as a text file (comma delimited or tab delimited ) I was guilty of not reflecting the fomat in the name . LINK

        We could use the native open office format. It's an open format and it keeps all the formatting the original file had. Plus it supports all the characters well. ASCII format doesn't.

          OPen Office is free but not universally understood unless you install OO which not everyone would be keen on installing . Can xml retain formatting and serve as a platform for a multilingual collaborative document ?

            Yes, I should have thought that paid office packages wouldn't support it.
            xml retains all the format except for lock cells (the ones on top with the languages), but it takes like 6 times the space and a considerable time to save.

              Michel,

              *.csv is "Comma Separated Values" (comma delimited)
              CSV is usually used for database conversions.

              I posted the Excel xls file first. Apparently Ryo and Pedro used the csv file instead of the xls. I just posted the csv version because it had been posted by ARV. Thanks ARV.

              I agree that we should keep working the file in the xls format, but it does not hurt to have the same file in an additional format. We just need to use the xls files as the originals to edit and save.

              Francisco

                  What about "castor"... client who builds by himself. Dangerous species.

                    Ryo and Pedro,

                    I think would be easier if you use the xls file I posted v20 and make the changes to it, then repost the xls file versions 21 & 22.

                    Look in the end of the long list of changes I suggested. Just before the CSV I posted.

                    The problem is that you used the CSV to make changes and it does not take the special characters that excel does. Maybe it's better deleting CSV's to avoid cofusion. If anyone needs a CSV I can send it.

                        It's a way of diferentiate places in the endless suburban sprawl when they don't have enough names for roads.

                        • I would say in the UK at least....

                          Lane - often implies has a destination at the end of it. (often in the countryside but not always) - originally not built upon ??

                          Drive - implies not primarily a pedestrian route.

                          Road - also implies to and from a destination. connects places.

                          Street - implies it has built form along it. From late Latin str?ta, paved road - .connects people.


                          try this:

                            Generally means something narrow single vehicle & does not mean its paved/tarmacoften connects farms
                            TRACK same as lane but not paved


                            Drive - implies not primarily a pedestrian route.
                            Generally private more often used as the vehicle access to a house
                            I've doctored the above with my thoughts

                              • Thanks guys, the Oxford is very unclear:
                                For example...
                                Lane:
                                1. a narrow road esp. in a rural area
                                2. a street in a urban area

                                Drive: a street or road

                                Street:
                                A urban road...!

                                Road:
                                A way esp. for vehicles... conects one place to another...
