Spelling in different countries.


I'm an Australian and we have different spelling to US. Should I care about this? Or should I use US spelling?

    I think OK referred to differences in spelling between US and UK English, not spelling between other languages. The difference between theirs and ours has no bearing on the meaning of words. As we know the differences, write the way you always do.

    Pacific Rim English, as spoken at the Altamont Speedway ca '69, I know it well. - a bit different to Estuary English but they'd understand each other, talking about passing tankers and container ships.
