How much work would it be...

If the lovely forum can tell me what time it is in my part of the world then can it also spell "Community Centre" in British-English for those of us in the UK?
I wish the HTML people would allow me to be able to use <font colour=red> and <centre> too, it's annoying having to remember to write it the American way.

True. I physically hurt when I see the word 'donut.'
Doughnut. DOUGHNUT.
However this server is in the US, and that's how they spell it there, so we have to live with it.
Sucks but truth.

I've never noticed the Community Centre bit before but the HTML coding, fook, that pisses me off.

That would be so much work just for your antiquated spellings...

Hahah. I'm not worried. British English will eventually be universally seen as the regional dialect that it is of Standard English. It's already happened in the world of computer languages.

Sure, but American English as well.

Standard English will be a mix of pidgin and chatspeek.

The good thing about self-inflicted sex is that I won't get pregnant or get any STDs
