Tom is, of course, correct. I work for a corporation which has a
worldwide presence and we constantly deal with differences in English usage.
In addition to the aformentioned difference in the handling of
collective nouns, there are also many differences in spelling. A few
examples (US, British):
There is no way to make a document which is correct in both British
English and U.S. English. Looking at it objectively, U.S. English is
slightly more logical due to the reforms introduced by Benjamin Franklin
to simplify the spelling (e.g, dropping the "u" from honor, color, etc.).
