not an optimal number placement imo...

But I mean then the label would be either awkwardly out in the water or invading Campeche or Veracruz.

There are already labels in the sea. It's better to have the label in the sea than have the army number cover up borders.

The number will be in the water. I'll post images shortly.

I've just realised that the M of Michoacan is covering the border with Colima on the small map. I'll have to fix that <huff>

So now, RedBaron0, The Bison King, and myself have all mentioned the Veracruz/Veracruz issue. I think there should be something textual on the map to guide the user to the proper entry in a drop down menu. For consistency, the word Puerto should be tucked in below the port icon and above the name of each port.

Congrats for the stamp mate =D>

If Veracruz is a problem, you could use "Veracruz" for the port and "Veracruz-Llave" for the territory --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignacio_de_la_Llave
Also, in his honor, Veracruz state was known as Veracruz-Llave from 1863 to 2004, and since 2004 has been officially known as Veracruz de Ignacio de la Llave.

Give every man your ear, but few thy voice. Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.

I echo the congratulations, and endorse the Veracruz-Llave suggestion. It provides for a distinction on the map without resorting to putting the word "Puerto" under every icon as I previously suggested.

Looks like I'll go with that... renaming one of the territories would be my preferred option ;-)

Final request from any Mexican CC'ers (or Spanish speakers) - please could you check the map for any spelling errors/mistakes; I'd rather fix them now than when the map is live ;-)

I strongly recommend you to rename the Veracruz port as "Puerto de Veracruz" and to leave the territory of Veracruz just like that. This is, rename the port, not the state ;)

Spelling mistakes? None, but I found only one grammar mistake: In Spanish you don't say "Valle de Anáhuac"; the correct way to say it is "Valle del Anáhuac". It's only matter of adding an "l" to de preposition "de" because del is the contraction of the preposition "de" and the article "el".

Should all the ports be labelled "Puerto de ...." in the XML? Or should some of them be "Puerto del ...." ?

"Puerto de", I believe, would be the correct one. "Puerto del" is for when you have a masculine article in front of the noun, though I'm not sure how this works for names entirely.

I think for names it's just "Puerto de", and if you wanted to use an oceanic port or something like that it would be "Puerto del (ocean name)". I think.
