Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

An island is mapped in the lake Klausensee near Schwandorf since 2008 but not shown in MapQuest Open? I compared it with a working sample (rendered in Standard and MapQuest Open) but can't find the reason for the problem (rendered in Standard but not in MapQuest Open). Can someone else please check it?

The difference is the tagging of the lakes:

The water in the second example is does not have inner holes - as it is tagged to the whole way.

See How to create islands in lakes in the wiki.

So, the natural=water and name tags should be moved from the outer way to the relation. Then it is correct. And it will likely also render in MapquestOpen (after it updated, which can take some days(?)).
