    That is a big question, but one of the things they have in common is that both varieties use capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and for the words British, American and English.

    Re: hi

    Rather than a big difference, there are a lot of small differences in vocabulary, spelling and usage. If you look at articles like this one about the differences, you'll see that it's a long list of little things.
