    It seems that in the UK there are two different pronunciations of the firm 'Heljan'. Out of idle curiosity I'm interested to see how many use them.

    I always thought it was Hel-yan, and that Google Translate link seems to confirm that.

    Now, is it Da-pol or Day-pol?!

    Seem to remember a magazine feature on the company years ago that said it was Dapol, as in apple, but I may be wrong.
