    Sorry...more info would be helpful. What do you mean by "didn't work?" Is "U.S." already checked in a greyed out manner?

    What OS are you on?

    I don't really know what else to suggest other than a reboot. I see that "don't" came out correctly in your last post, unlike your previous ones...has it fixed itself?

    Repairing permissions might work. :)

    Fingers crossed.
