    How can I set my default dictionary to British English rather than US English please. I have downloaded the British version but it has vanished off into the gubbings somewhere and now I cant find it.

    Machine Model: PowerMac12,1
    CPU Type: PowerPC G5 (3.0)
    Running OS X 10.4.9 and Firefox.

    Thanks folks , sorry for being so stupid:)

    In any application that has spell checking go to Spelling > Spelling... At the bottom of the dialog that appears is a pop-down menu with the name of the spell checker in use. Select your flavor of English from this. The change is global and the dictionary is already built-in. Best wishes.
