Headings changed

I've just made the "Q" headings proper ones and not simply bold text. As well as being semantically right (not that Mediawiki is very good in that respect), it generates the page contents (as per most FAQs I've seen), and also creates hyperlinkable individual Qs (my original motivation). As usual, it can be reverted if unpopular. Hubne 23:12, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Area

How to draw an area, such as a town or a district ? --http://solages.site.voila.fr/index_en.html 08:03, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Areas are just ways where the first and last points are the same. --Richard 13:24, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Thus there are 2 problems: firstly the limits of an area are often streets, road or rivers, so that the limits hide or are hidden by them. They should be semi-transparent coloured, as in Wikimapia. Secondly after I've drawn such a closed path, I don't have the possibility to say it's not a "way" but, for instance, a town or a district. --http://solages.site.voila.fr/index_en.html 14:24, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
