(As I typed this, the damn spell-checker in this Firefox picked up my faulty spelling of "civilised" which it wants to turn into an abomination by spelling it "civilized". Sigh.)

BUT... Firefox is undoubtedly using the spell-checker installed on your
system, aspell and/or ispell, which both change civilised to 'z' on my
system. And both allow you to 'personalize' the dictionary or use
other dictionaries.

and catalogue is *not* found
Many thanks Pat for reminding me about the availability of various dictionaries for Thunderbird. How easy it is to forget what options are available when one has used an application for years and becomes (too) used to it :-). I have just installed the British and the Australian dictionaries and now don't get the rubbish about misspelling words when correctly using "-ise" rather than "-ize".

BTW, if you want to have a laugh or two go to

and read the Open Letter to America written, as claimed, by John Cleese. It's on the Home page and is called, Britain Revokes America's Independence.
