    No, it's "Pearl Harbor". That is how it is spelled. It is an American name.
    It would be incorrect for me to change the spelling of an England place name to American spelling; so it is with the converse. "Pearl Harbor" is the correct English spelling in England, and "Pearl Harbour" is incorrect.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I think your'e right and I stand corrected, but I was educated in England and we are truly "two nations separated by the same language ", one of my sons went to university in the U.S.at U.C. Berkeley and in has English classes had trouble with American spelling, which when you think about it is kind of ironic.

    Now, if you were talking about Portsmouth, you'd be correct!
    What I said.

    I'm in favour of complete acceptance of English spelling of English words here in the US as valid and correct.

    Yep! Just a little bit different flavour.

    I think the "Harbor" in "Pearl Harbor" is a proper noun, so the spelling should not include the "u".

    If you were to require people to accept the alternate spelling, you would have to allow people from the USA to spell "Leicester" as "Lester".
