On a side point to the "We are the world" thread, I've become aware of
more British writers using the US zee for "..zation" in place of the UK
English "..sation". The weird thing is, this has all been in the past
couple of weeks!
I'm personally considering switching to the z, for the sake of
international compliance, towards a true "International English". (But
can I still call it a 'zed'?)
Which brings me onto another usability side-point: In dialog(ue) boxes,
I've seen both the following combinations of options:
"UK English... International English"
"US English... International English"
Which is the true international English? Shouldn't there be a standard,
or is the term useless? It certainly is if it varies depending on where
you're sitting relative to the person who wrote the software! And isn't
this all about UK and US versions, anyway? I'm not aware of any
International standard, other than either US or UK variants...
