>>My Australian XP and OS X systems both have Sunday as the first line of the
>>weekdayNames

Hi Again, Monte,

Since I don't have an Australian OS, I asked Igor Couto in Sydney to 
test this with system weekDayNames.  His response(s):

"It returns:

Saturday
Sunday
Monday
Tuesday
Wednesday
Thursday
Friday

Odd, why is Saturday the first day? I'll switch system languages, and 
see if the same happens with them..."

and

"I am using MacOS X, 10.2. I tried switching the system language to 
Brazilian Portuguese, Australian English and Esperanto, and the 
result of weeDayNames is always the same list - always starting with 
'Saturday', and always in English..."

There is definitely something amiss somewhere.
