Actually, wrong. "Initialize" is correct spelling in the UK too - I've
checked several UK dictionaries printed in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s
sourced from different printers, and they all agree on that.

At the same time I checked other words which I thought ended in -ise.
The dictionaries all said -ize and didn't list the -ise version.

Therefore, I suspect -ise came into use in the late 1980s in the UK.

Given my research, I'm intending to use the -ize version myself from
now on, to support the English ideals. 8)
