Paleontology vs Palaeontology

Hi,

In the osm database, sites with fossils have the tags geological=palaeontological_site , see Tag:geological=palaeontological_site - OpenStreetMap Wiki and taginfo counts.

But, when we search for information on the Internet, the result is almost Paleontology (without “a” at the 4th place) : on wikipedia, on britannica.com, on cambridge.org to give examples of important websites found with a search.

Why not use the most common spelling ?

Best regards
