Spelling: English or American spelling of English words. Which is best?


I am English and I generally use English spelling when writing. However, I have fallen into the habit of letting my WP software's spell checker change some of my English spellings into their American equivalent. This is largely because the spell checker is better at spotting my spelling mistakes and typos than I am. There are exceptions though. I cannot - for instance - quite bring myself to accept 'thru' as a replacement for 'through'. Has anyone any views or advice on this issue. All comments welcome.
