Yeah:

Merlyn:
"I think an easy solution would be to purchase both domains and have one redirect to the other that way you can stick with one whether it's 'center' or 'centre' and still get visitors that may distinguish between the two URLs."

What about meta tags for synonymous words with different spellings???

I tend to use both US/UK spellings of words throughout my text.
Seems to work ok for me :)

Semantics can be at the centre of the problem.

I am reminded of my stepson pointing to the screen on a video game and yelling "I can't get these sheemas...what are sheemas!?" He was referring to schemes. Later he told me to be more pacific, when he meant specific. I replied Pacific is an ocean.

I used to live in Scotland. When it comes to speaking British English (The Queen's English) be especially careful using homely and homey, especially in casual (not just dressed that way) conversation.

Homely (ugly here) in the UK means homey here in the United States.

I learned that a homely way!

Symantecs have nothing to do with it. It was between center and centre which both mean the same thing.

Yes, I agree, use English as in "centre". Same in French, in fact. Trust the US to try to be different. They still use imperial measurements too, no? The majority of the rest of the world has gone metric. So, it may not even be a matter of phonics. :lol:

In my limited experience I would definitely recommend using US English.

I've noticed that UK users logging in to a site with US English as a default don't seem to mind it as much as when US users log on to a site with UK English as the default language. This is only a personal observation and that really should be qualified with a poll and statistics to back it up.
