Haute Vienne, Cote du Nord, Pas de Calais, Lozerre are the correct ones.

:P
I made a mistake anyway come to think of it, it's Lozere.
For Corsica I don't think it matters much though. Corse people call it Corsica.

I would say that Garonne and Mayenne (the labels) have plenty of space to be moved away from the borders. Just looks strange when you have all this space and they are right on the edge for no apparent reason.


The corners on the legend seem off. The angles where they are 'cut' are different on the right and the left (at the top at least) Or, at the least they appear to be. I think with the corners looked better. Or, at least fix these so that it is uniform throughout.

Dunno what "Cote du Norde" is :D

I live in this region and I can assure you that the correct name is
Côtes-d'Armor

Great map otherwise !

PS: take a look at that : http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%A9par ... %C3%A9gion

Cote du Armor isn't correct in french :/

Before a voyel you must have d' instead of du

Cotes d'Armor at the least (you can't put ô and - on CC ?)

I rounded the edges on the map

Changed Cote du Nord to Cote d Armor

Moved territory labels to their final location.

After DiM makes minor changes to the xml I think we're good to be quenched right?

nope. frankly whenever I see these 2 maps I think they are unnecessarily large, but that's just personal taste.

legend corners look good to me. I'm not gonna Wisse it and zoom in because well if I can't tell from this view it probably doesn't matter
