I'd like to step in here, as a heavy user of en_GB and say that the
original form is correct *and* in common usage. I accept that it may
not have made it into en_US yet (after 100 years or so, such a short
time) and while some people would argue that as en_US has evolved less
since 1776 it is closer to the original form, I'd like to counter with
"It's *our* Language and we'll change it if we want to" - *We* in this
case being the subjects of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by the
Grace of God, of Great Britain, Ireland and the British Dominions
beyond the Seas Queen, Defender of the Faith
This is why Grammar Nazis need to stop - language is a diverse and
evolving target. You can't keep up and you seem to be paying attention
- how are the normal non-Grammer-Nazi's and non-Anglophiles supposed
to handle it?
