Spelling[edit]

The spelling was a bit of a mixture of US and British. There seemed to be more of the latter, so I switched the US to British. I hope that I got this right. The article creator is most welcome to change it all to US. -- Hoary (talk) 13:51, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

  • Thanks again. CeeGee 07:31, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for the reply. (But next time, could you please not change text that has my name under it? But feel free to copy it and paste it and write comments within the pasted copy.) It's a pity that the sources you're using are so vague, but I understand that there's probably nothing you can do about this. -- Hoary (talk) 07:41, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
