In your place names page you suggest that "Isle of Wright" should be spelled "Isle of Wight". I suggest you correct your spelling. Isle of Wright" is right, "Isle of Wight" is wong.

FIPS (US GOV) says it's Isle of Wight County, not Isle of Wright County

Here's a link:

You're free to spell it however you like in your own data, of course.

BTW - unlike Isle of Wight, wong does typically have the r after the w... "wong" is wrong, "wrong" is right [:)]
