Except that Frank Zamboni invented the ice resurfacing machine, whereas Kleenex didn't invent tissue.

remembered the Zuider Zee in The Netherlands and tried every variation and spelling I could think of...Zuiderland, Ziederland, Zee, Zeider, etc. I thought I tried Zeeland, too, but apparently not.

Part of me is of a mind that you should accept the commonly-misunderstood-to-be-the-same-thing "zirconium". But the other part of me wants everyone forced by this quiz to know the difference.

No. They are different things. A Zircon is a gemstone.

I think 'Zircon' should be correct for Zirconia?

Zircon is a naturally-occuring gemstone; zirconia is a man-made diamond substitute. They gave different chemical compositions and structures, so no. They're only similar in spelling.

A bajillion other places say 'zed' for z: Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, India...it's 'zed' in the vast majority of the English-speaking world. Perhaps you want to rephrase the clue as 'outside the US' instead of British?

Even in every foreign language, the letter Z almost always sounds closer to its origin, Zeta, than Zee. However, as an American, I have to uphold my proud Zee origins, and declare that every other country/language to be a bunch of commies.

Accept zircon? That is what it is called by jewellers, and well almost everyone eventhough it might not technically be correct.

Also a quote from the wiki page on zircon: Colourless specimens that show gem quality are a popular substitute for diamond and are also known as "Matura diamond".
