A special case is made for the word SAINT. All instances of the acronym St or St. which occur at the start of a name are expanded to SAINT by the script which creates the gpx files and the table below. When entering any street name into OSM which uses the word SAINT it must not be abbreviated, as per Editing Standards and Conventions#Street Names.
