UK vs US English

There are numerous differences between United Kingdom (UK) and United States (US) English spelling and, as stated elsewhere, we accept having a mix of UK and US spelling on the site while preferring the UK spelling for articles titles and content in our continuous aim for uniformity. The choice of UK or US English for cases is up to contributor preference.
