When MAP_FRAME_TYPE is set to 'inside' the gridmarks are plotted underneath the label. Wouldnt it be nice if there was a gap (i.e. no plotting) of the gridlines underneath the label?

Probably. Please attach an example command and plot to start the conversation on this.

Example plot:

pscoast --MAP_FRAME_TYPE=inside -W -R5/35/76/81 -JS20/90/10c -Bafg/afg -Dh -P > kart.ps

I've attached two figures illustrating my suggestion.

Technical note for the developers: The way to implement this would be to set up clip paths from the annotations first, then draw gridlines, then remove the clipping. Will have to ensure that the normal progression is to do labels before gridlines (currently does not matter so can easily change that) then look into how we set up clipping via the similar situation for clipping contour labels.
