    Re: Brussel or Brussels

    Ems and Bob, you're both right, according to Wikipedia:

    Lyon ... traditionally spelt Lyons in English, is a city in east-central France...

    It says the same about the spelling of Marseille/s.

    Re: Brussel or Brussels

    This is a very strange thread. I can't help but think there are at least two posts missing from it!
