For anyone who thinks he spell Emmanuel wrong...Immanuel is derived from the Hebrew word "Immanuel" (Isaiah 7:14). "Emmanuel" is derived from the Greek word in the New Testament (Matthew 1:23). Both spellings mean "God with us". Both spellings are correct.
Remember that the Old Testament was written in Hebrew, a language that did not have vowels (e.g. 'e' or 'i'). So when the Hebrew was translated into Greek, the translators rendered the Greek "Emmanuel" based on pronunciation not on a particular spelling. Later when the Hebrew vowel were added by Masoretic scholars, a vowel was added which modern scholars typically render as an 'i' rather than an 'e.'
