Re: [Subclipse-users] Date format on Mac OS X

Hi Mark

Thanks for your quick response - user.country is set to 'US', language
is 'en' and timezone is 'Europe/London'. Is there a way I can change
country to 'UK'? I've looked in the Mac Java Preferences screen and
there is no setting for country.

Thanks for your help.
