Supercede Superseded
Whenever I'm unsure of the preferred spelling for a particular word, I refer to Google Trends to compare the search volumes for the different spellings and find the one that is used by the majority. This helps remove any Australian / British English bias from my web pages and optimise optimize them for a global audience.

A recent comparison of supercede and supersede gave a surprising result:

Google Trends - 'supercede' vs 'supersede'

It would appear that the word supercede seems to have been well and truly superseded some time around 2012.
