For the spelling of an Indian tent I've seen "tepee", 5M google hits, lately instead of "teepee", 20M google hits, with which I'm familiar.  And yet "tipi" gets 210 M hits.  The two that auto correct here doesn't like are "teepee" and "tipi".  Unfortunately "tepee" makes the least phonetic sense since the vowels are the same and should be spelled the same.
