Using ( not the API ), how can I change my settings so that the elevation of mountains is displayed in feet instead of meters?

Thanks, Scott

The map on openstreetmap exists from pre-generated images. Those images (or tiles) are the same for everyone. There are no settings that you can change to display values in other units or names in other languages.

Also, avoid tagging for the renderer. The OpenStreetMap is rendered in metric distances. If you want to see the map in imperial distances you will have to find a (different) renderer that displays feet rather than metres.
