Is there a way of changing the spelling of the "Favorites" menu label in Internet Explorer 6 from the American to the UK spelling ("Favourites"), like you can in Avant browser?

No, I mean it's set on en-nz, but this obviously doesn't link to display menus which still show the American spelling as mentioned. Running Win 98SE.

Why not stay with Avant?

If not then you will need to change a few things in the registry.

Righto...did you try tools...internet options...clicking language in general tab?
Type in box English (New Zealand) [en-nz]That with luck should take priority.

LOL that's a good one.
But why does it matter, is it just a cosmetic issue?

(edit) I think you might beable to use resource hacker to change the names on the menues, never tried it, wouldn't try it myself, but if you are darring...

Yep, obviously one way out would be just to change browsers, but I don't want to do this.

I agree it's a cosmetic issue, and probably a bit whimsical, but I'm sick of putting up with the wrong spelling, explaining why to kids etc!

When you go into Internet properties/General/Languages/Change dialogue - there is only one option for display menus - English US. If you click on "add", you are directed to Microsoft Update Site which does not help. The previous screen - Web page content languages has heaps of language options.

Perhaps AMD1 is right, might need a Registry tweak to change.
