    Virtually everyone uses sulfur nowadays, especially among the scientific community, so I use it too. However, I did use “sulphur” all throughout secondary school (our science teacher was old so that’s how he’d spell it) so I remember it being quite strange to make the switch at university, and now I’m so used to it that I couldn’t go back to the old spelling.

    I was always taught to spell it as 'sulphur' in secondary school. I thought 'sulfur' was the American way of spelling it...
