UK English was "re-Frenchified" in the early 18th century when all the us were added. So one could say that Color is old-fashioned spelling and Colour is more modern spelling. With the corollary that Americans haven't updated their dictionaries properly since 1800 :-) -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.win...@ekiga.net 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: rus...@winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
