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..
