French still spells Paris with an 's', even though it's hundreds of years since French people pronounced it with an 's'.good luck renaming Paris to Pari, Beijing to Pei-Tzing and the Hague to s‑Gravenhag
Which romanization scheme are you using for Mandarin there? The current official standard is Hanyu Pinyin, under which Beijing is the correct spelling for the city Westerners traditionally spelled "Peking".
I have no problem with Hague province being labelled "den Haag" or "'s-Gravenhage".
