10.4: Make the Dictionary safer and easier to use
Authored by: Bioinformatics on Nov 10, '05 12:00:57AM

I agree and its a bit bizzare given Apple's usual good standards in international support. When I heard of Dictionary I thought "great", but on trying it just once, I've never used it since...

A lot of the British variants <em>are</em> in there somewhere, just not "up front". Either they are buried in the American equivalent's entry, or the program brings up a "did you mean" alternative with the American spelling (so its obvious aware of them).

Given there are list provided of American/British English differences (on the 'net and in any good style guide), it wouldn't have been hard for them to have done better.
