August 2008[edit]

Information.svg In a recent edit to the page Honda Insight, you changed one or more words from one international variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For subjects exclusively related to Britain (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to other English-speaking countries, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the appropriate variety of English used there. If it is an international topic, use the same form of English the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to the other, even if you don't normally use the version the article is written in. Respect other people's versions of English. They in turn should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Wikipedia:Manual of Style. If you have any queries about all this, you can ask me on my talk page or you can visit the help desk. Thank you.

Aluminum is not a typo, it is the American English spelling. swaq 17:06, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Female Duchesses[edit]

Actually there have been in the British peerages Ducheses in their own right eg: Duchess of Fife, Duchess of Inverness, Duchess of Kendal although they have usually had royal connections but not actually counted as "Royal Dukes". Penrithguy (talk) 19:29, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
