How can I change the default spellchecker in Mozilla SeaMonkey?

Mine defaults to US spelling for my browser and I want it to default to English New Zealand or English UK. As far as I know I have everything set for English NZ as my main language but this does not change the default for my spell checker.

Can anyone help?

    A few things for you to try:
    Download and install SeaMonkey in British English from here:http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/
    Uninstall your american version first of course.

    Assuming you have installed the correct language pack, open SeaMonkey and type about:config in the address bar and press Enter.
    Accept the warning to proceed to the configeration page.
    Search for : spellchecker.dictionary and double click on the string.
    In the box that opens, change the language pack from en-us to en-gb and OK your way out.
    Close and re-open SeaMonkey and your Spell Checker should now be in British English.

    You can get language packs from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/language-tools/ make sure they are compatible with your version of SeaMonkey.
