The wiki entry for a dispensing pharmacy is amenity pharmacy dispensing=yes and showing a WHITE cross in a GREEN square (see link text ) So why when I enter those tags does the symbol appear as a RED cross inside a red square outline?

The wiki page you pointed shows an icon that is not used by the default osm.org tiles. This default style uses a red square. In France, the pharmacies are known to be represented by a green cross, so a green icon is used: example

Thanks Nicolas, can you please tell me where there is a list of the default tiles so I know what to expect in future. Jim

I guess instead of the tiles (the rendered map images) you are asking about the symbols for the default layer. They can be found at the openstreetmap-carto github project which is used to render these tiles.

Thanks, as a newbie I am finding the nomenclature very different and quite confusing. I am used to maintaining a simple text and image website and all this seems to operate in completely different way. Jim

Hi JimAsh, you’re still able to use simple text in the advanced menus and a lot more possibilities. The symbols were made to simplify the proces. It depends on the editor, ID, P2 or JOSM, please read this http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Beginners%27_guide. Btw don’t hesitate and keep mapping.

Hendrikklaas, your link went to a page with no current text... This one is ok... http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Beginners%27_guide The only difference in the link is the full-stop at the end I think?
