-ise (realise, personalise, etc.) is the preferred UK (and Canadian) spelling.
Americans like their zippy z's.

hi,

Not another of those US vs UK English issue...

My co-worker and I are having a little debate over which is which, eg.
personalize vs personalise. i believe that 'personalize' is a UK English
spelling which was proven wrong in the dictionary (which makes me rub my
eyes twice. All these years, i was trained to think otherwise)
it's not that i don't trust the almighty dictionary but i need some
assurance from you big guys out there..) thanks in advance.
