Yeah. When I was a kid, I went to a private school in a small coastal tow which had retained a great bit of English culture and language. SO my spelling and pronunciation stuck out like a sore thumb when I moved to a public school way up in the Appalachain hills! (centre, colour, flavour, etc,)

We're more for conserving our letters for necessary use: colour, is bad enough, but programme is over the top.....

It also says that "Instructable" and "Instructables" are not words. It recommends changing it to "instruct able".

I was taught to spell it Colour, but apparently Color is how most people spell it, probably just because it's easier and it's how the brits spell it.

Aye but you might have the wrong version of FF dictionary for your area, granted it's technically the right way.

He's checking it with the Instructables Spellchecker; Firefox has nothing to do with it.

I've always spelled it colour!? Maybe us hillfolk look a little more positively on language of the land of our origin! As a point of reference, all my family names are good English (and Socts-Irish) ones. Bentley, Eaton, Hamilton, Reeves, Norman, Brice, Whitehurst, etc.

Kiteman must have hacked instructables.

I should have expected it
