    Dreamweaver language preference

    inquestflash Community Member

      Hello Dreamweavers!

       

      I have English spelling as my preference in DW. I was following a tutorial where the instructor spelt the word colour(English) as COLOR!

      when I was importing the css sheet, nothing was happening, I was thinking what have I done wrong and its not working,only to figure

      out it was that small spelling variation. so how can the css be associated with English spelling preference?

          CSS is CSS and is independant of any language. CSS is interpreted by the browser.

           

          Hence CSS does not understand colour or centre, these should be color and center.

            Hello Ben

             

            My browser is set to english UK,

            so In other words your suggesting to me what ever the css drop list has I choose from it.

            I have to go according to css language spelling recognition which is pretty much in american english.

            thats too bad css doesnt recognise these word variations "colour" rather than it recognises the word "color" instead.

            I also noticed now that you stated,in the css pallete it has color. Just wondering why is the language preferences it has english UK or American English.

             

            thanks for the information though.

              There are languages that are spoken; in my case it's Australian and we say specialise and not specialize, colour but not color etc. When I use the spelling checker connected to this post, I get error messages for the highlighted words because this site happens to contain an American dictionary.

               

              Then there are programming languages such as HTML, CSS, PHP and Coldfusion amongst others. These languages do not necessarily follow the spoken language. Most of these programs originate from America or from countries that have adopted the American language.

               

              My system and my browser is set to Australian English, but this does not alter the fact that we have to deal with what is being dictated.

               

              Think of the Russians and Chinese. If they were to respectively write цвет and 顏色 for color, they'd be f...ed
