How does it suit you?

Chain Mail or Chainmail? Which do you use? We at Museum Replicas find both to be acceptable but in an effort to be correct we've been looking into the subject. We referenced both Stone's Arms and Armor Glossary as well as the Cosman Medieval Wordbook and found both use the split wording chain mail. Furthermore, it is told that the term chain mail is wholly incorrect and that the armored garment was simply referred to as mail or in older texts maille. What are your thoughts?
