The shields for jpnh is now displaying correctly working on the development server.  The svg needed a viewport to be set.

The shield for jpne is also now available on the development server.  Both shields are displaying on the clinched/traveled roads page

I'll merge those into the mainline and install on the production server if it's all looking good to go.

It looks good enough for now.  I vote to promote it.

I eventually should tweak the font size, position, and possibly the kerning of the number text. That would be much easier on a development server because it'll require many iterations to get right.

Thank you! Work on the front end is always welcome :)

I've closed the Github issue for the jpne shield.

hwy_data/JPN/jpntk/jpn.hie5.wpt is unprocessed. Please check if the route should be added to csv files or if the wpt file should be deleted.

hwy_data/JPN/jpntk/jpn.hie5.wpt is unprocessed. Add the route to csv files or delete the wpt file.
Why? What harm does its unprocessed existence do?

The route is under construction, and the file consists of the jpntk.csv entry, and an intersecting point, to make things easier for me when it opens. It's now not me who'll be dealing with it when it opens, and I'm not saying keep it, but nezinscot shouldn't have to delete it just because it appears in a log.

Thanks and sorrY! Text changed and striked through since irrelevant now.

I thought that it might be unprocessed by accident.........

I have begun a second pass through the Japanese national highways, starting with the N300-N325 group. 

As a result of the second pass, and doing recent updates because of new road openings, I've decided that I should change the way I designate the main road.  Before, when there was a choice I followed the oldest existing route, typically the route through a congested urban area. The other option I designated as a bypass.  I now believe I should put the main road on the through route, which is almost always the bypass. 

Additionally I am removing the Byp designation from routes.  There is no official designation marking a route as a Bypass, and routes are not signed as Bypass.  I formerly based Byp on the route location and function.  (An added complication is that almost all new road segments have their own unique name that contains Bypass, so everything new is a bypass in some way.  Ambiguity is the norm in Japan and in Japanese.)

I now plan to use this route naming scheme:
1) The main road is the through road when there is a choice.  The route name is Nxxx.
2) All other routes with the same number have an appended location abbreviation - e.g. N300Yam, N300Mat
3) No routes will use Byp in jpnh.cvs.

Some expressways are also designated as "motorway on general national highway".  I will treat the concurrent national highway designation the same as any other route and not mark them as Byp.

Seconded!
