I wonder if anyone can help me out..

I am looking for some documentation of the major differences between these two
languages - ideally a document covering areas deserving particular attention -
e.g. words with wildly different meanings or undesirable connotations.

The majority of differences will be resolved with spelling checkers in the
two languages, but I'm keen to find if there's any other major differences
I should be aware of.

To an extent things are pretty good at the moment, there are no fannies, fags,
or fawcetts in the help, but we do have one rubber.

Any help would be great.

Ollie.
