    Trivia question #85 Why is Modelling spelled that way? Because the U.K. users that previewed Revit complained about it sufficiently to get it spelled their favourite way. Lucky for us they didn't get their favourite colour. (or at least that's the urban legend)

    Whoot? Revit is not localised to the Queen's English? Tis a shame. I bet AutoCAD's colors and modeling just drives them batty. No wonder they are jumping on the Revit bandwagon... it's not the software, it's the spelling in the UI!
