"flavour" to "flavor" >>

Given the incredible ignorance of a lot of American teachers I wouldn't be 
surprised if they originally lobbied the publishers to Americanize spellings 
just to make their own jobs easier. If the kid never reads it as both "flavour" 
and "flavor", he won't be so likely to spell it the "wrong" way.
