    Ok guys I know this is about as trivial as it gets but this has been annoying me for a while. If you notice at the bottom of yahoo's front page they have Denmark spelled Denmark. See here: http://www.yahoo.com/

    AFAIK, 'Danmark' is simply the Danish word for Denmark. Dunno why Yahoo has it spelled differently in different locations.

    Yes, "Danmark" is the Danish name for the country. If you notice on the mail-page, they spell all the European countries in the language of that country (Danmark - Deutschland - España - France - Italia - Norge - Sverige).

    He obviously misinterpreted what it means to "be bullish."

    And, of course, it should be "Moskva" not "Moscow." I think on early maps it gor transliterated from Russian to German to English.
