XML endianess is incorrectly spelled

In the XML definition RealDash-extras/RealDash-CAN/realdash-can-description-file.md at master · janimm/RealDash-extras · GitHub the word endianness is mis-spelled as endianess.

This makes it very confusing & difficult to properly set the endianness attribute – especially since spelling it correctly causes no error in RealDash – it just doesn’t work.
Can you make it so the correct spelling works? Best to support both for backwards compatibility.

I also request that RealDash shows an error if an unrecognized value is in an XML tag, instead of silently ignoring it.

Alright, that sort of things happen as we are not native English speakers.

GitHub documentation is updated. From next version (2.3.9) RealDash will accept both, ‘endianess’ and ‘endianness’

No worries – it is an uncommon word even for native English! Thank you for the fix!
