Ok, so my mac for some reason always autocorrects or tells me I spell things wrong. I believe it is using British English because it always changes "z" to "s" (for example realise vs realize), but I have no idea why it does that. I've gone to Settings-> Language&Text->Language and it has US English on the very top followed by English (and just to be sure I've reordered them to put English first but the same thing happened). I used to have British English on the list (never at the top though), but since then I've removed it entirely from the list but the spelling suggestions are still the same. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? Thank you!
