Grace asked about UK style guides:

I have worked in several places here in Sweden and we have always used
British spelling (well, I happen to come from Britain). A couple of months
ago we purchased Sun's "A Style Guide for the Computer Industry" and I can't
say I found anything in it contradicting my ideas on style. The spelling
differences are already well-defined in dictionaries so that is not what I
need help with when I look in a style guide.

So. I don't see any problem with consulting style guides that are produced
in the US. Or am I missing something?
