The official Delaware standard sign set appears in the April 2009 publication "Standard Signs". For signs which are not rendered as icons (highway=stop might be the only one rendered at present), recommend using traffic_sign=* and traffic_sign_ref=*; the value for 'traffic_sign_ref' would be drawn from the standard sign set publication. For examples, see node 618492134 and node 618492182.
