Humo(u)r

Being born only a little before decimal currency was introduced to GB, my grasp on pounds, shillings and pence, and on (most) imperial measures, is tenuous at best. So I guffawed loudly (into my tea) when Bojo proposed a return to imperial measures in UK shops. So progressive 🙄

That said, it seems I have my own weak spot: I can’t tell you how often I have searched for elusive CSS errors just because I wrote them in English. British English!

Well, it turns out there’s a solution for that: a CSS post-processor for British English writers (GitHub repo).

no no… CSS is holding it wrong! color should really be “Couleur” or “Farbe” or maybe “色”; as a last resort, eventually , “colour“… but bear in mind, “Fog in the Channel, Continent isolated” and ‘imperial’ measures.

:-).

(I lost count of how many times I typed that one “wrong”, only to have the browser dev tools scream at me – such impolite brats)

😄 The replacement array in the code is actually very straightforward so you could in fact make it work with all of those.
