@Nelz: Iceweasel - definitely set to en-gb. It also prefers "color" to "colour". Looks like it's your word against the combined might of the Firefox and Debian communities, eh? No contest - you win. Rolling Eyes

colour color

The second word is highlighted here, so it's clearly not the forum software. If you think about it, the spelling is checked before you hit Submit, so only your browser knows what you are typing at that point. IceWeasel probably uses either ispell, hunspell or aspell, I wonder it it is either the config for them or the dictionaries you have installed.

With Firefox and Seamonkey, you also need the correct dictionary. You can find the relevant dictionary here:

Well, if they say it should be spelled color, who am I, my copy of the OED and my correctly configured spell checker to argue? Razz

Oh yes. Students at the time were trusted with a fully functioning debit card, overdraft facility and in some cases, an additional savings account and credit card (the latter two were presumably intended to cancel each other out). My previous account had none of these - people with full-time jobs have so much less money to play with than students, after all. Confused

Hey, that works! I am now allowed the licence to add a little local colour without being red-lined. Thanks.

You're welcome. I'm not sure why the dictionary isn't included with the rest of the locale related stuff.
