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

Is their a rule set that is identical to the OpenStreetMap web version. I love the web version and I tried a rule set that I found on the internet which matched it better that the Maperitive default.

Here is the link to the rule set that I use: Click Here to Download

Could any one see what is missing in this rules to make it almost the same as Mapnik. By the way I do know there is 2 slight problems with the style and have fixed them. This file is an old version.

If you wan't a real identical ruleset, you need to write a style converter as AFAIK the official map style is a moving bullet and tuned permantly.

What do you think is missed? I guess nobody will start looking for differences in your rendering and setup a desktop renderer for you?

Not a direct answer to your question, but an alternative solution might be to use a desktop alternative to Maperitive such as TileMill. That can use the actual OSM stylsheet (so maps will look identical), but you'll probably need a small local database to store the data in. There's an extensive walkthrough at the TileMill site, but it will take a little while to get up to speed with it.
