    Can I use British UK Spelling in my hubs as it was the spelling I grew up with?

      You can do, certainly, but you might find you don't get much traffic (or not as much as you could get if you used US spellings).

    Thanks for your responses calculus-geometry and blessedp, I use the UK spelling format in my hubs but wanted to to get clarity on whether it can be used or not. It's difficult to change one's spelling especially as I still use it for emails and any kind of correspondence and writing.

      Very often, the automated spell checker in the text capsules tells me a word is incorrect - so I simply right click on it, and add it to the dictionary.

      A few of my hubs have words that are not commonly found in the English language; botanical names, recipe titles, etc. Once I "add them to the dictionary", the red underlining doesn't show up when I use that word again.

      You probably already know that, but someone else might not, so I thought I would mention it.

        Thanks for your input Shades-of-truth but wouldn't this only apply to the American Spelling format?

          DaveOnline, I would imagine it applies to any language's format. Quite a few words that I use have foreign origins, and as long as I right-click on the word that shows up as being incorrect - select "Add to Dictionary", and save the capsule, it works.
