From the Mac OS X Dictionary:

spelt 1 chiefly Brit. past and past participle of spell

That is the end of that then.... [Wink]

Admit it Cap'n. You've really missed these little English lessons from Rhonwyyn. [Big Grin]

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Okay, I'll give you that one, TFD. Dutchy talk around here pronounces "spilled" as "spilt."

I'll see your Wikipedia link and raise you one:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Spelt

Don't fight with English folk about spelling - it was originaly their language, and most of them do know how to spell. [Wink]

There are even places where English disappears. In America, they haven't used it for years!
