Is it possible to have the taxonomy term name instead of the taxonomy term ID in the URLs?
Basically what i am saying is that I have a term Delhi - with ID - 6.
Now the URL to this term is

can we do something to make it

I need this to include RSS feeds from Drupal into other parts of my website - but naturally hte other parts of the site do not know the term ID - they know just the term.

You should enable (or install if you don't already have it) the path module which allows you to rename (or alias) URL paths.

You might also want to have a look at the pathauto module for automation of this task.

But filling up the aliases table (manually yet) seems to make a lot less sense than just
Indexing things by name.
Dries disagrees, but I think the pros outweigh the con.

It would have been trivial for taxonomy to parse_int(arg(1)) then taxonomy_get_term_by_name() if asked for a string.
I'll make one of them next time I'm playing with taxonomy.

I am now using Path module - with pathauto to do this. but what dman suggested is certainly doable - and would be a good feature for taxonomy.
