Unlike color/colour, and similar differences, "grey" is actually common on both sides of the Atlantic. (The AppleNova posting guidelines, for example, use "grey.") It's just the fact that "gray" is not used outside of the US* that makes everyone think "grey" is The British Spelling. Many US style guides prefer "grey." /pedant

*) Except, of course, in names.**

**) I may be biased, here.

and i guess i've known it all along / the truth is, you have to be soft to be strong
