I've also been wondering why Khabno was spelled "Chabno"?
There is a detailed discussion of this at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Translation/Chabno
The Wikipedia entry in Polish spells it Chabno. I believe that that part of the
Ukraine used to be part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. So it would seem that that
is the Polish spelling. Of course, Ukranian is written is in Cyrillic, so that
Khabno would be a transliteration.
