Location field spells city name incorrectly

When I enter my city name while editing my careers profile, it changes my city name from Pula to Pluj after saving the profile. Pula is a real city in Croatia.

It's an amphitheatre: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pula_Arena – Andrej M. May 19 '12 at 8:25
    
@Lucifer in cases like this, quote trick is not that important because image background differs from that of the question – gnat May 21 '12 at 4:50

Unfortunately, Yahoo thinks the name of the town is "Pluj"

http://developer.yahoo.com/yql/console/#h=select%20*%20from%20geo.places%20where%20text%3D%22Pula%20Croatia%22

<place xmlns="http://where.yahooapis.com/v1/schema.rng"
    xml:lang="en-US" yahoo:uri="http://where.yahooapis.com/v1/place/849901">
    <woeid>849901</woeid>
    <placeTypeName code="7">Town</placeTypeName>
    <name>Pluj</name>
    <country code="HR" type="Country">Croatia</country>
    <admin1 code="" type="County">Istarska</admin1>
    <admin2 code="" type="District">Pula</admin2>
    <admin3/>
    <locality1 type="Town">Pluj</locality1>        
    <areaRank>2</areaRank>
    <popRank>9</popRank>
</place>

There's not a lot we can do in this case. You can try reporting the bug to Yahoo but they haven't been terribly responsive to these requests in the past.

You could just not mess with the city name? I'll just delete my account, thanks. – Andrej M. May 25 '12 at 18:06
