Charlez,

just a dumb remark : the specs uses the word 'Authorization', while you are using 'Authorisation' I'm wondering if I've ever seen 'Authorisation'. I've noticed you wrote 'memorise' too

Satou ,

Just got something for for your curiousity::


" The American habit of ending words either '-ize' or '-ise' at random is inconsistent and hard to remember, compared to British usage of always ending '-ise'. So although Americans criticize and have to memorize, they also advise and televise; Brits on the other hand criticise, memorise, advise and televise. British usage is more consistent, and much easier to remember.."





Rgds,
Shivani
