Add color labels to message in Mail.app

Good god... settle down.

Here's much more relevant information anyway:

Considering only "offcial" "English" speaking countries,...
...Twice as many Apple computers were sold in America than in Europe last quarter... This does not include the Apple Retail stores, and not all of Europe speaks English anyway.

Sorry that more Americans use Macs, but it's just numbers. Simple majority wins.

Dude, if it was a simple matter of numbers, then the rest of the English speaking world would have forced Americans to spell "colour" and "honour" et. al. correctly in the first place. Sorry, majority wins. ;)

Most Americans write "color" so it should be color.
Ah! But, most people write "colour" so it should be colour.
No, wait! More Macs are sold to people who write "color" so it should be color.

Perhaps we can settle on "kulla" ? Actually, I think robg is right to say uniformity is necessary, and despite being an English English as opposed to American English speaker, I am happy if he wants to use "color".

Perhaps a mention on the Advanced Search page that American spellings are used could avoid any searchers trying to use "colour" ?
