Thanks for fixing all typos. I have just looked into Oxford dictionary(and few others), and it seems that both, "favourite" and "favorite" are correct forms, however "'''favourite'''" is used much more in dictionaries. Thus I have a question, is "favorite" an American English word?

Hi Leadman,

first of all I am no native speaker, either ;-) . Favorite is American English and I was not sure what the Wiki is written in - probably doesn't really matter, so you're welcome to revert it, if you prefer favourite.
