I'm at odds with a colleague of mine over the correct spelling of the above title words.
My stance is that they could BOTH possibly be correct. My question specifically is....
Could one spelling be the hard fast correct spelling, hence "the rule" and the other simply the "exeption"? Yet, accepted as possibly an alternate?
My goal here is to find if one or the other holds an ounce of legitimacy more than the other, even if a tad. Thus, the exception/rule thingee.
