Wouldn't this work better using the IUPAC-approved spelling, Aluminium?

In 1925, the American Chemical Society decided to go back to the original aluminum, so the United States uses a different name from most other countries. The IUPAC periodic table lists both spellings. I'm American...

I believe all that sgllama is saying is that "aluminium" would work better as a replacement for "millenium" as it has the same ending, not that it is the "proper" spelling. And s/he is correct (I am American also). ;)
