I have a problem whereby I cannot get OS X to recognise British English words as correct.

System Preferences>Language&Text>Text>Spelling is set to British English.

However, when I type words like 'colour' and 'recognise' in mail, text editor etc... they are underlined in red as incorrect.

I have just spent over an hour with AppleCare, and they think that a complete re-install of OS X maybe the only solution. I really, really want to avoid this at all costs!!

Has anyone else come across this problem and if so, what was the solution?

Many thanks in advance,

Martin Neep
