More Russian -> English

    Yet another case of mistranslation from Russian to English is the 
species name of _Maleevosaurus novojilovi_.  It should be 
_novoZHilovi_ (the "zh" pronounced like the "s" in measure), because 
the "j" is too harsh, and the sound for "j" is spelled in Russian as 
'd"zh"', not just "zh".  Incidentaly, the letter for "zh" looks like a fancy 
"x" with a verticle line through it.  To George Olshevsky:  what are the 
second vowels in Maleev, in Russian?
