Re: Horner and Goodwin on Triceratops

I get about 14k Ghits for "Ceratopsidae" and about 1k Ghits for
"Ceratopidae", so while usage isn't consisent, the spelling with the
's' is easily the commoner one.
I got 313,000 hits for "apatosaurus" on Google compared to 784,000 for "brontosaurus", but that still doesn't make Brontosaurus valid. Not that I'd advocate ignoring popular usage, but sometimes relying on it can be dangerous.
