It may seem a small thing to some, but for aesthetes and others, the appearance of words does count. Think of this as the genealogy of words (etymology). Can we please have the SysOps allow for the website to appear according to British and Commonwealth spelling or U.S. versions. I know Canadians can be schizophrenic about this, so perhaps some of them may opt for U.S. conventions, but otherwise it would be helpful (and soothing) to have the option for choosing whether one sees the American or British/Commonwealth (B/C) spelling of terms such as Honor Code (B/C: Honour Code) available. It would also go some distance toward making Wikitree less Americano-centric, and more global, just like genealogy! Thank you, Upton.

I second that :)
Bravo !!! Great idea. By the way, I have not met any schizophrenic Canadian spelling fanatics. We Canadians prefer the British spellings and American TV.

Oh yes, American t.v. as in P.B.S. so they can watch their favourite British telly programmes.;)
Right on the money !!!
