Saltong or Saltön?

There seems to be some confusion over his name. This might be due to the TBRC profile which gives gsal ston as a title. All sources I can find, including Gene Smith's Among Tibetan Texts (quoting Kongtrul) give Saltong. --adam 10:05, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

"gsal stong" seems to be correct: gsal stong shwo sgom is mentioned in bka' brgyad mgur mtsho with the other two from Kham, and spelling of both TBRC pecha-versions is gsal stong. The spelling in the wood block is gsal stong sho skom and in the other version gsal stong sho sgom... mgur mtsho p. 000268/1 (page no. on pecha), mgur mtsho p.473/5. Domschl 13:45, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
