Is it possible to use 서울 meaning capital, no matter the country? I have a children's book that say the following phrase: "브리튼 (지금의 영국)의 서울에 있는 캔터베리 대성당에서는 엄숙한 미사가 시작되었다" I think 서울 is being used in that phrase as capital city, so I'd like a confirmation about it.

That is very interesting. I would like to know the answer to that too.
