Fabien:

As Diane said, there's a model...but it's only that, a model. I've seen,
used and, at clients' behest, had to use both American and Canadian
spellings. Why? It depends. Leaving the English/French debate aside,
there's personal preferences; Royalists and monarchists; anti-Americans;
pro-Americans; American and international clients; industry-specific
practices; docs created in Canada but intended for use only in the US;
etc., etc.

Then, of course, there's the question of which date style to choose:
English Canadian, French Canadian, or American -- if one can remember which
is which and who uses what. le 5 octobre = 5/10/97 but october 5 = 10/5/97

Ya got any specifics in mind?

FWIW
