I just found this Wikipedia article interesting. It appears that with some matters of spelling, punctuation, or capitalization, the experts don't seem to have a unified or common view. Here are some examples:
1) Gasoline or Petrol?
2) Aluminum or Aluminium?
3) Cougar and Cheetah - should they be capitalized?
4) Color or Colour?
5) Flavored or Flavoured?
6) Sulfur or Sulphur?
7) Yoghurt or Yogurt?
8) Whether there should spaces between the dash when writing a person's date of birth and death [e.g. Example (January 24, 1943 – August 9, 1969) or (January 24, 1943–August 9, 1969)], or whether the month or the date comes first, [i.e. 1 July or July 1]
9) Whether or not "The band" is/are a collective noun.
What's your view? :)
