I know that you are joking, but if your are trying to type a document
meant for publication in Canada, it would be nice if the spelling was
correct.  I'm not sure if there are any words spelt differently in
Canada than in either the US or UK; normally its one or the other.  Then
again, to choose US or UK often reflects one's roots.  On the other
hand, sometimes UK spelling just looks wired to me, such as oesophagus.
I know, esophagus doesn't look much less wierd.  Then again, I often
spell wierd wiierd.
