Im running the xsltproc osm-map-features-z17.xml but I get errors in the beginning and it goes into a continuos "area centre....." Is this correct? What should ideally be the file size?

Are you referring to this step in using the osmarender? Not clear from your question

Calculation of area centers takes quite a while, so be patient. Note that the perl implementation of osmarender is quite a bit faster than the XSLT version.

The size of the resulting SVG file depends a lot on the size and complexity of the area that you render. Files between 200kB and 5MB are quite common. If the file is significantely smaller something might be worng. Larger files can be perfectly valid but are hard on rasterizers.

Your experience is normal. Unfortunately, it can take a long time to render a SVG using xsltproc. I rendered a relatively large city several months ago with the z17 stylesheet (its bounding box was North 41.6000 West -81.85 South 41.4173 EAST -81.5323 ) and it had taken over 6 hours to render !

As petschge mentioned, the speed was much quicker with or/p - the same bounding box and stylesheet had taken less than 10 minutes to render with or/p !
