What does Stella McCartney have in common with the new Jaguar XE? Erm...
OK, its maker calls it a bus, but it sure looks like a car - one with six wheels and 23 seats. It measures all of 15 meters long, 2.55m wide and 1.65m tall, and weighs 9.5 tonnes when fully loaded. Speaking of which, the 23 passengers access the car through one of sixteen gullwing doors. The Superbus is no slow coach, either, with a cruising speed of 155mph (and on electric power alone).

So, 'meter' and 'metre' both exist in English and mean different things.
How would you spell the World Trade 'Center'. It is established as that spelling instead of Centre used in the UK.
The same goes for Meter and Metre.
There are many types of English in this world. The 2 main ones being English UK and English US. SO THEY ARE USING ENGLISH!
I get annoyed when sometimes auto-correct demands that it must be English US, but in all honesty, English US is an easier version of English to learn. It is mainly a more phonetic language compared to our language, the hardest language in the world to learn. I envy the Americans sometimes because of this. Metre does not make any sense. Phonetically, it should be Met-rrr. Meter phonetically is Me-terrr (Forgive me but proper phonetics, I haven't done it in years).
So uk.msn.com please continue in this vein of work, because you are doing it as you see fit :)
