	I would've said that you Canadians were using the British 
spelling -- it's not original to Canada. At least I didn't say 
'behavior' was the *American* spelling!

	It tripped my spell checker, and I couldn't tell what the 
policy is (sounds like there isn't one yet).

	I'd prefer the docs to be consistent either way (it's easier 
for me to work with the US dialect), but don't have a problem with 
being 'dialect-agnostic'.
