In my electronic version of Van Dale (E-N), it is spelled as "bruto gewicht", two words. In the N-E and N-N version of Van Dale, it is written as one word. At second sight, I agree with most of you that the correct spelling should be "brutogewicht", one word.

agree  vixen: with Erik; in my edition of Van Dale (EN) the word is also - incorrectly - spelled as two words. Van Dale (NN) includes an hyphen (end of column).
