Today I was writing a mail (the non-electronic version) and used the contacts app to look up the address. The order of the town and the post code in the contacts app is wrong, in Switzerland, Germany and Austria, the zip code is always in front of the town name. I don't know how it is in other regions of the world, but could this be changed based on the language settings? I compared with my old N900, where the zip code is also in front of the town name.

This sounds like another request for settings... please "optional" settings for such stuff as language based is always no good for someone! I like to have my language, my metric, my date etc. I know that what I want it to be is the technical correct one and not based on some language profile

Translations of the People app can now specify the correct ordering for address elements (released in version

Please report here if that has not been done for your locale, or if you disagree with the provided ordering.

Thank you, looks much better, one small bug remains. I now see a comma after the Town, so it looks like

[Street] [Zip] [Town],

A comma as a separator after the Street would make sense, after the Town it is a bit pointless.

@Cmdr_Zod: thanks, I'll look into suppressing the trailing punctuation.
