Default strange city

Dear Viviane (or any other moderator),

After I uploaded a photo from Istanbul I noticed that this is another city that has been spelled in a huge variety of ways. It would be nice to see the city "normalized".

I have seen it written as:
Iistanbul
Instabul
Instanbul
Intanbul
Isatnbul
Isatnbul Airport
Isstanbul
Ist
Ista
Istabul
Istambul
Istanbaul
Istanboul
Istanbu
Istanbul.
Istanbule
IstanbulPark
Istanlbul
Istasnbul
Istnbul
Itanbul

There was also a picture from Denmark, marked kopenhagen, which had been sorted into Istanbul province.

The very correct Turkish spelling would be İstanbul, but we can forget about that.

Whenever you find the time...

Thanks,
Gert
