But to spell in what language ? "alfa" happens to be correct
spelling in Finnish... Most people won't realize that difference,
of course --> thus I tend to agree with Alan about this.
(English "ph"-double is usually "f" in Finnish: alpha -> alfa)

Hey, forced teaching of finnish to the computer people ? ;-)
