Standard Terms issues: “Bottle” can be translated as “purkki”

If you are translating a text concerning e.g. capsules or tablets, and they are in a ‘bottle’, the Standard Term term for bottle, ‘pullo’, is not the proper term. Pullo is a container for liquids, not for tablets, granules or capsules. For these solid medicine types, the proper term is ‘purkki‘, although that is not included in the Standard Terms.
