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.
