Before I even think about trying it, do I have to think in American?
(that is, do you know if their dictionary only has US English spellings?)

I remember putting colour in once and not getting credit for it. But I did get credit for theatre.

I have a weird mishmosh of spelling. There are some words I consistently write with American English spellings, but many words that I flip flop on. I got dinged on my thesis because I was using British Spellings (of course, it was a paper about the London Jewish Community in the early 20th century...it was more specific than that, but I'm not trying to be all boring now). My professor said that unless I'm British I shouldn't be using the British spellings. So I told him I'd be happy to bring my birth certificate in if he wanted. :-D So he let me keep the spellings my way!
