Thanks for putting up with my coding errors.  :)

Anyway, the other New Brunswick shields were added, as were nclt and usanes (last one still in a pull request).

126/186 shields for active systems have been created - 67.74%.

The main issue with canmb was the superscripted letters, which I'm not sure how to handle.

However, recently my colleague at Wikimedia Commons made shields for cannl and mexed, so hopefully those can be added soon.

If we just say fudge-it-this-is-better-than-nothing and include regular letters, is that doable?
(I just downloaded inkscape an hour ago and am wicked excited.)

It is, and there are a few others in that category (PEI for example). Or we could just estimate.

These are live on the tmtest site.  If after some testing all looks good, let me know and I'll install on the production site.

Shouldn't the usaush shields be more like this?

I guess it depends on whether we want to go with the period shields or the modern-day historic ones.

I'd vote for modern-day historic.

Shields for other systems typically match the posted shields. This system is made up of routes currently posted with a distinctive brown shield (with some minor variations by state); it's not all routes that once had US route shields.

I'd definitely like to see the current brown historic signage if we can make it happen.

This.

Though the old US Highway signs are very nicely done, that's not what the system is.

I'll see what I can do, but it probably won't be until the next batch. I don't think we can match the font exactly though.
