For an internationalised software product will you use the term
"Favourites"(UK) or "Favorites"(US)
Internet Explorer in its menubar uses the term "Favorites"(US). Please let
me know your thoughts.

If this is a desktop application, you can detect the locale of the
user, and adjust accordingly.

As someone who uses UK spelling and is often confronted by US spelling, I
actually don't care what is written on the UI. It's only really an issue if
software is spell checking my work - and it's really annoying if it tells me
to write "color" instead of "colour" (like firefox just did then - damn you
firefox!)
