Well, if thats the case, I would recommend spelling it as gauge, or
otherwise finding an element name that does not have conflicting
American and rest-of-the-world spellings. I'm assuming spelling it as
gage is American, since they seem to have trouble with the letter 'u' in
many other words as well, which I personally find really annoying. So,
I'd rather not have country specific spellings in the markup language.
