Hi Joe,

I wrote it as gelignite, because I know the German name Gelignit,
and now I looked up both gelignite and jellygnite in Hypertext Webster.

Results for gelignite:
a type of dynamite in which the nitroglycerin is absorbed in a base of wood pulp
and sodium or potassium nitrate


Results for jellygnite:
No definition found for "jellygnite"

so that seems to be in my favour.
And I think I remember something like it coming from
"gelum" (Latin for jelly) and "ignitium", the ignition,
or burning jelly, but I'm not sure about that.

cu, Andreas
