Hi, I don't know Wikitravel's policy advertising lks, but I've had to remove a very useful-looking one from Wikipedia, so I've plonked it here under "Do". Do with as you will. Cheers, [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:JackyR JackyR]

What is the correct spelling? Tombouctou / Timbuctu / Timbuktu ...? --Nzpcmad 16:36, 7 Jul 2004 (EDT)

I've always seen Timbuktu in the US, while working for the UN, and in travel publications. But it sounds like a job for a google search... I found 278,000 for Timbuktu and 31,000 for Tombouctou-- almost all French. I suggest Timbuktu as the article name with redirects from the other two and the intro sentence "Timbuktu, also spelled TOMBOUCTOU" which sounds like the way to go here..

I'd agree with that but Wikipedia uses 'Tombouctou' with redirects from the other ones. --Nzpcmad 21:00, 7 Jul 2004 (EDT)
That doesn't really factor, though. --Evan 21:25, 7 Jul 2004 (EDT)
