...should be Hägglund and Hillström - and I suspect that Applequist was originally Äppelquist...smiley - geek

That aside, I think this entry is very informative and objective, without making a hero of Joe Hill, but showing all the aspects of his life and deathsmiley - ok

Titania, while we're on the subject of nitpicking and diacriticals and stuff, so you think it would be necessary to change the spelling of Gävle from the old spelling to the new spelling? Personally, I think it kinda looks good with Gefle, and it might very well have been the spelling at the time, but still..smiley - smiley

Hmmmm... I like the old spelling Gefle too, and I had several search results on that name - but I can only find the city's official site when searching for the new spelling Gävle...

...maybe one could add the current spelling of the city name in a foot note?

You know what? Let's not bother. We both think it looks good, so why change it? It's still used in some instances, so I see no reason to change it. Footnote could be an idea, though. Naah.. Let's just leave it as it is.smiley - smiley
