I am wondering why the article is called Jebel Shams with two Es in Jebel. According to the German Wikipedia, the transscription aacording to DIN 31635 is Ǧabal Šams (reads Jabal Shams in English). Accordingly the lemma in the German Wikipedia is Dschabal Schams ("dsch" equals English "j"), Džabal Šamas in the Lithuanian Wiki and Djabal Sjams ("dj" equals "j", "sj" equals "sh) in the Dutch project. --Kazu89 ノート 15:44, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
