    I have always tried to get both I have also tried to cater to Americans with my spelling on forum.
    Favourite vs favorite I went with US for sake of form but would buy both for a domain.
    Often you can pick up a UK spelling when an American registerers something of interest.
    I picked up a vapour keyword domain when vapor was developed.

    If you use microsoft word spellcheck you can see the difference between USA spelling and UK spelling.
