I'm numbering streets with iD editor. The menu have the following options to post code:   - addr: postcode;   - postal_code.

What's the correct tag: addr:postcode, postal_code or both?

For something that has an address - e.g. a house - use addr:postcode=1234. For a post code boundary, use boundary=postal_code, postal_code=1234. For things that neither have an address nor are a post code boundary (e.g. streets or place nodes), don't add any postal code tag.

I am numbered with the tag addr:interpolation by adding at line ends the following information:   - addr: housenumber;   - addr: street;   - addr: postcode or postal_code (doubt is here).

@seth the line ends of an addr:interpolation are something that "have an address", so addr:postcode
