The Big "T" in "WurliTzer"
By Matthew Caulfield

It always annoys me to see people write "WurliTzer."  The company name
and the family name is Wurlitzer.  The big "T" is simply a design
feature of the Wurlitzer logo and needn't -- shouldn't -- be used when
writing the name.

The Wurlitzer logo also has an elongated leg on both R's in the name.
But people don't seem to feel called upon to replicate that feature of
the logo.
