      The problem was more insidious than a mere typing error (however frequent).
      In quite a few sites the two words appear together. To make matters worst,
      this also was found to be the case in a single sentence: "The outer
      polyethylene shell was then finished, and an inner circular sleeve of
      polythethylene was slid into each column of lead".
      PolyTHethylene also was offered for sale as such on Amazon.com.

      As Jan Kordac put it "We can call it polyTHethylene virus."
      Not easy to recognise unless you are a chemist!

      I find Google an invaluable tool for our profession but I must admit that
      for me this was quite a humbling experience and an eye-opener.
