en-US means U.S. English.

The microformats wiki re-uses the W3C Manual of Style Spelling Editorial Guideline and thus uses U.S. English for page names, and contents of English-language pages, although British-English spellings MUST be preserved if originally used in:

  • proper nouns
  • direct quotations
  • transcribed audio, where the speaker is known to use British-English
  • URLs
  • user pages
