Checked again today and Nellis, Creech, Groom Lake are all incorrect. ironically enough it appears that Tonopah and other new airfields added are close enough to being correct that I don't think they need to be fixed.

 

Here is some additional information and pictures:

 

ETL 04-2 STANDARD AIRFIELD PAVEMENT MARKING SCHEMES covers how marking should be. Taxiways are on page 18-20. It states:

 

Mark the centerline of all taxiways, guidelines on runways, and taxilanes on aprons and pads with a single continuous 152-millimeter (6-inch) wide yellow stripe.

 

Figure 9 (page 20) shows it as well. I've attached the latest ETL 04-2 for reference.

 

Here are some images showing the correct taxi markings per USAF standards. Before anyone says "but those aren't from any Nevada airfields," no they're not but USAF bases are all required to follow the 04-2 and marked the same.
