[placenames] suburb font size too big in place=town or place=village

Description

For example look at this place: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=45.4886&lon=18.0925&zoom=14&layers=B000FTF

Font for place seams too small or font for suburb is too big. Can this be fixed to place is more clearly visable and not to be mistaken for suburb?

Cheers!

Changed to minor enhancement. It's not easy to solve though, because if this would be done, people would ask for bigger fonts on _their_ suburbs.

I propose to use italic font for place=suburb or (if possible) use smaller fonts if place=village and bigger if place=town/city on the basis of tag addr:city

Yes suburb name seems to be the same size as town name, so for suburbs in town rendering do not make difference. A smaller font size and italic would be fine par example.

An example here : http://osm.org/go/eqr1cD7

Cognac is a town (20000) with some suburbs : Vieux Cognac (old town), Saint-Martin, Saint-jacques, Champ de Foire... On the map isn't possible to distinguish town from its suburbs.

They are rendered with the same font size and the same color

another example here : http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=50.6301&lon=3.1569&zoom=14&layers=M

Villeneuve d'Ascq is the only actual town : La Cousinerie, Le Chateau, Flers Bourg, Flers Neuf, Saint Sauveur and Brigode are suburbs. It's very confusing.

I suggest to hide suburbs name until zoom level 15.
