I know that in England we spell some words differently and also we use the same words to mean different things to the American usage. If anyone is interested this might help the Hubbers from places other than America learn words/language they need to adapt to for their hubs.
(Example 1/ spelling) I write colour unless I am writing a hub and then I write the American spelling color.
(Example 2/ using different words to mean the same thing)
We wear jumpers I think you call them sweaters.

Starting with off with
color = colour
This is a game we play daily at my house! LOL I'm a native Texan and he's a native Brit.

fringe = bangs (as in the forelocks of a horse but on a person)

Chap ==> a crack or cleft in the skin or on crust of the earth
Chap ==> to hit (slang)

I recently read some reviews on Consumer Affairs, which were absolutely devasting and have got me a little worried. I was wondering if anyone else wrote at similar sites prior to HubPages and why they made the switch, and if they had thought about going back.
