Okay.

Open a new document.  Select Multilingual spelling as Hugh describes 
below.

Type:  This is my colour. What is your color?

Check spelling and everything is spelled correctly.

Switch from Multilingual to English spelling. (Apple, of course meant 
so say American English. Right?) =:O

Check spelling and "colour" comes up wrong. So there is a not so 
colourful color test.
