Hmm.

As far as I can see the only "US English" parts of the quick tips are 
the letter "z" in "summarize" and "organization" both of which (although 
commonly believed to be American English spellings) are actually 
alternative but perfectly correct British English spelling (see Fowler's 
Modern English Usage or e.g. 
http://www.ntnu.no/intersek/english_matters/Style%20hints.htm#_Appendix_A) 
...

or am I missing something?
