I'm gonna go off-topic and point out to Aka, who's british, that it's daemon, not demon.

Well, technically, it's actually dæmon, but you englishmen don't have an æ on your keyboard, do you?

http://www.askoxford.com/concise_oed/daemon_1?view=uk

"archaic spelling of DEMON1."

So hush you.


Have you english people gone soft and turned to americanisation of words now? It's sad.

That page uses medieval instead of mediaeval, encyclopedia instead of encyclopaedia, and probably other americanised simplified spellings as well. I will not listen to it.

No, we will use the good, old, books to determine this. And in those, it's almost always dæmon. So I win.

Sure, it archaic, but it's right. Demon is a pansy way of spelling it, fit only for dirty, simple americans!

You have your Midwestern Redneck mixed up with your Southern Belle.

I'll wait until we can see good, old visual proof of said books before we can so confidently claim that "you win".

EDIT: Oh and I'm not saying dæmon isn't an acceptable (and rather fine-looking, imo) way either, but I tend to react when people say "this is right, that is wrong, win".

I'm afraid I don't have that many archaic mediæval tomes on dæmonology lying around, so I have a bit of a problem with backing up my claim.
