Well, Americans have unleashed some of their horrible spellings on all parts of the world. Whatever happened to the good old "doughnut"?

[Personally, I feel they should be called "dough-torii" - what have they got to do with nuts?]

Windows Mobiles dont have it installed by default (well, the SPV C500 and XDA Trion's i've endured haven't)

You have to install some third party app called smartexplorer i seem to remember. iPhone doesnt do it either does it, but you can cut and paste now *snigger*
