    Default Is the name of this forum a mistake?

    Hi. This is my first post so I'd like to make an offering. If the name of this forum is based on the line "treasures twelve for you to keep", has there been any discussion about the name "tweleve.org" not being the correct spelling? Look closely, now... /Brian[/u]

    Default OK, you've got it.

    Now that I've seen more forum entries (and the correct place for this observation) I see that it's already been mentioned that the quote reads "twelpve", not "tweleve"! Good luck all!.

    "Tweleve" reflects the misspelling in the index... see "Chapter Tweleve".

    and there are two places in the hidden poem that says twelve, one says twelpve, but the other still says TWELEVE
    Or am I just paranoid...

    *Of course*

    I am originally from England and although many things are spelled differently over there, the correct English spelling of 12 is twelve - same as in the US. I also verified this in the Oxford dictionary. So, I believe that it is an intentional "mistake" by MS.
