When Brunei was in the news recently, I think all the newscasters I heard assumed that German spelling was at work. You know, "ei" is pronounced "eye." I've known people from there, and they said "ay-ee", which is what I'd assume from history. Maybe the news people can get the locals to clean up their phonetics. DMLance
