The plot thickens:


 > First, American English and British English do not have the same 
pronunciation for the same words, yet the two are intermixed in the 
English wikipedia.

I am not suggesting we start adding pronunciation *everywhere*, but that 
we standardise pronunciation guides where they are given.

Some sort of IPA version has the huge advantage that the symbols can be 
copied to *any* other Wikipedia in any language.
