Is it "centre" or "center"?

Post by EC » Sat Sep 18, 2004 9:50 pm

Why do I sometimes see "centre" and sometimes "center". Is it a mistake?

The spelling in English is centre, but in US English it is center. This is one of several differences between English and US English spelling. Other examples are:

theatre/theater
colour/color
catalogue/catalog
