Seems ok for Norway. But its stil a problem with people using older
setup. And theres no agreement on using the new-WideN-N
And its a little difficult to "learn" people when your statement:
1) Ask ALL users to stop using WIDEn-N and start using TRACEn-N.
---- OR -----
2) Simply swap the names WIDEn-N and TRACEn-N at the digis and
let users keep operating as before with the simple path of WIDEn-N.
Why? Because UI-View users probably is following M0CYP recomandations on
http://www.apritch.myby.co.uk/uiview_neweu.htm as this is a link from
It would be better to explain that if more than 60% of european is using
some sort of WIDE or WIDEn-N its easier to adapt to the new-WideN-N
rather than TRACEn-N
So the "easy swap" is the hardest ;o)
If every country is going for one standard then it should not be a
problem(localy), but visitors have to change their setup.
