Abstract: For disjoint subsets of the Michael space has the topology obtained by isolating the points in and letting the points in retain the neighborhoods inherited from . We study normality of the product of Michael spaces with complete metric spaces. There is a ZFC example of a Lindelöf Michael space , of minimal weight , with Lindelöf but with not normal. ( denotes the countable product of a discrete space of cardinality .) If denotes , the normality of implies the normality of for any complete metric space (of arbitrary weight). However, the statement `` normal implies normal'' is axiom sensitive.
