FWIW: i keep seeing the argument "on Mac" but never has the OS on that Mac been 
mentioned... AFAIK there is more than one OS for Mac or at least more than one 
version of the OS... it is possible that the default has been changed plus 
there's whatever was selected for the language during the installation... this 
really should be clarified for your Mac and its OS...
