These Github tickets related to shields can probably be closed now ...

Thanks, closed.  And thanks for all the work improving the shields.

Should shields for double-bannered routes be shown in the opposite order, i.e. with the 1st listed banner on bottom & 2nd listed banner on top?

I think it should be.

Would also be better if we could instead have the shield show '70A' instead, due to that's how TN signs the base Alternate route(s).

This came up when the banners were introduced (starting at the below post on page 12), but I don't think there ever was an agreed-upon solution.

I've removed the extra letter from (all) usausb shields that shouldn't be in (most of) them.

The problematic cases are ones like US 20A in New York, which is signed as such rather than Alt US 20.  Not sure how best to handle those cases generically.  I could add a handful of special cases.

Easy enough to add if we can get an SVG-format version.
I got it down to a PNG, then tried to convert that to an SVG using an online converter and it didn't work (see attached).
Attempted this a second time with the logo I pulled off the website; don't think there's copyright concerns since it's just text with geometric shapes.
This topic coming up again reminded me of the Northwest Parkway again; I took the PNG from Wikipedia and used an online SVG converter to make the attached file. It's a little janky but at the scale we'd be using it for I think it would be fine.
