The answer is in the link I provided in my first post. Alpha software (labelled as beta) = incomplete functionality.
I too prefer the UK english spelling as on our side of the world, we use en-gb and it's frustrating when an app thinks we should convert our "s" to "z".
There was a funny circulating some time back about the Germans assisting the rest of the world to pronounce and spell words correctly. They started with changing all s's in written and spoken literature to z's. I think they got the US first :p

Do you mean for the user interface, or just the spell checker?

I test installed it into a UK-language MX-14, and the spell checker used UK English without intervention.

Just noticed the .4 update patch is out for this. When you open Writer it asks if you want to install it. Have to say this is nice software. On the other hand you could put $70 a year in Microsoft's pocket :-)
