Probably none of the stringtable keys should be changed, as some C++ code may be expecting the initial spelling, even if it's not continentally consistent. This doesn't affect the player though, as the string keys are supposed to be visible in-game.
I intended to leave the keys alone, and didn't just run a blind search/replace. I looked at each instance before hitting "replace", though apparently i hit the wrong button at least once.
I decided to try my hand at making one of these. I
[*]fixed changes uppercase/lowercase mistakes

It's appreciated. At my best, i'm not a great copy editor.
While Drydock is not a word, it looks a lot better than "dry-dock." Additionally, "dry-dock" is a verb that means "to put in a dry dock." Technically the right word would be "dry dock," but I assume we previously had "drydock" because it looks better and makes more sense in a space setting.
I didn't realize "dry-dock" was just a verb, but you are right.
Probably we had "drydock" because several of the writing contributors (including myself) tend towards mushing words together. I think as this is a group project we'd better stick to standard usage except when the term is obviously part of the sci-fi setting-- stuff like: "homeworld" and "nanoreplication".
