Use UK in the same way you would USA, so;

a) "President Bush has never visited the UK/United Kingdom"
b) "Official UK/United Kingdom policy is to have no policy on the Euro"
c) My address in my sig ends "Sheffield, UK".

By the way England beat Argentina in the World Cup, whether or not
they thought we were "scheduled" to lose. AFAIK the only "scheduling"
that went on was in games involving Korea :-)


PS. Has anyone else noticed that the archive page on the web site
doesn't have a link to the July archive, but the page is there
if you go to june's and then swap 0207 for 0206?
