If I try typing centre, that's underlined too. But if I spell the same words as color, customize, or center they are not underlined.
Testing out a few more differences, honour, enrolment, skilful, catalogue, programme, jewellery are UK English spellings which are underlined by the spell check.
Honor, enrollment, skillful, catalog, program, jewelry are all US English spellings which aren't flagged up. So I don't think the British English language pack is working.
Lorraine from across the pond, or the linguistic gulf!

If you are using a FireFox extension check its prefs or add dictionaries. I dont know much about Windows. Does it have a builtin spell checker that works in all programs?

mmmmm - like it - can this feature be put into the other version..?

Geez, I am SO dysfunctional!!
