There's a new Docs & Spreadsheets link on the UK homepage...

It links to this landing page..

http://www.google.com/google-d-s/hpp/hpp_en_GB.html

i dont get this..

why Google chooses to place the "Create a new account" button above the "Sign in" button..
(and thats without mentioning that the "Sign in" button is really small!!)

you can see it here too :

What's with all the images in the tour? All text are blurred out.

That's the main diff between
http://www.google.com/google-d-s/intl/en/tour1.html
and
http://www.google.com/google-d-s/intl/en-GB/tour1.html

Ha! That's very cheap localisation! Maybe they thought British readers would be put off by the baseball example (or whatever strange American sport it is). They should have changed it to show the names of cricket teams instead.....

http://www.google.com/google-d-s/hpp/hpp_en_gb.html

even though its the same link, just the GB is not capitalized..

Correct me if I'm wrong, but being case sensitive is something to do with the HTTP server settings ... </all_knowledge>
