Hello, In osmarender, if I have a long name for an area, it is written in a long line. How to do to write the name in 2 lines or more ? My idea is to do a thing like 'n' in C... Thank you very much !

You don't, I think is the short answer. When you are mapping things you map what is there, so if it has a long name then name=(the long name) is the correct tag. It is up to the different consumers of the data (such as the Mapnik and Osmarender rendering layers) how they decide to display it. If you want it rendered differently it might be worth looking at the different options available for rendering your own map (I've not managed this yet, but am often tempted).
