Polylines (Highways):

Explanation: There are 6 layouts in total. Colorwise however "thin""wide"  "clas" are all the same. Easy and Hiking are only slightly different. They only differ in the width of the lines to best match the different GPS. The mapsource/Qlandkarte GT layout (referred to as "trad" from now on) however has different colors, with less contrast. Therefore in this mag legend for Polylines (Highways) there are always two examples. One using the "trad" layout (on the top), and one using the "clas" layout below).

Please note, as this question often pops up, many variables like tracktype are just munged together from other keys like smoothness or surface. If you want to know what is the primary factor please read the sourcecode of the style-file (see FAQ).
