    Color.

    If you pronounce "Colour" the ways it's spelt it sounds like "Cull-oor".

    Color sounds like it's spelt.

    I'm American so really it's color for me, but I don't agree. The language is English, and I think we should leave it the English spelling as colour. So I usually write colour.

    No, if it was color it would sound like co-law. The phonetic spelling of colour is "culler", so if you want to butcher the word, use that one ;)

    I always use "color", but I have no problem whatsoever with the alternate spelling.

    I used to write in American spelling when I was in the US, but now I'm proudly back to the correct British spelling. :D So "colour", "honour", "favourite", etc. for me. ;) I sometimes even make mistakes when I write HTML and wonder why it isn't working... :p
