 Is seperate an American spelling? I'd use separate.
 
 
 Googling for it renders an awfull lot of hits, so either it is
 American spelling, or many Americans can't spell. In case of the
 latter: I must have seen the misspelled variant to often ;).
 
 Anyway, no problem in changing that to 'separator'.

 *Separate:*
 
 1. /verb/
 To put apart; to disunite; to divide; to make a boundary, barrier or
 space between; to single out from others

Yes, I remember this often-fouled-up word by thinking about a pAring
knife, which separates its subjects into pieces.
