I created this at Assiut because that is the spelling someone who seems to know the town had used; see User talk:Tour Mana Ali. However, WP uses Asyut, Assyut is used elsewhere including on the UNESCO site, and World_cities#Egypt has Assyût. Obviously, the only really correct spelling is in Arabic & those are just different ways to render it in English. I created redirects to this for the others.

But does anyone know a good reason, or even just have a strong opinion, on which we should prefer? Or know of a policy that covers this? Pashley (talk) 21:57, 2 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
