Note: it might be that AppleLocale refers to the language chosen (thereby becoming the "default language") when installing OS X and can only be changed by reinstalling and selecting another language? If so, then AppleLanguages has no relationship to the AppleLocale and may only refer tothose used for menus, dialogs, websites, and text processing. You'll have to experiment and see what pops up for each. _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
