"quinientos - 500"? Shouldn't that be 'quincientos ...'? (I think there's a spelling mistake there. Comparing it to 100 and 200, it looks like a letter "c" got dropped.)

I thought the same thing (doing a different sort of course), Kenneth, but then I Googled both words and found only 37 results for "quinicientos." Seems like "quinientos" is correct.
