Oh dear, I wonder where the Americans got their English from then ;)))))

I do notice that some web sites have both US and UK flags for switching to
English. I guess this shows how country-centric we can sometimes get (I
don't mean this in a derogatory manner).

I've seen a US/UK flag combination on a website for "English".  It was
a flag shape, divided diagonally from bottom left to top right.  The
"upper-left" triangle was the US flag, the "lower-right" triangle was the
Union Jack.

Maybe that would help?

I knew someone would ask...  unfortunately, I can't remember the URL.

It was on a German PIC-related website.  Sorry.

I think that it only shows that there are *two* nations who have trouble
telling flags apart.

I never heard of that before.  FedEx definitely operates here.  Must be a
California thing.
