Errr, I feel a bit foolish, but I have absolutely no idea - you can set 
a region in the International System Preferences pane, which is set to 
UK, also you can set your time zone in the Date/Time pane, but nothing 
specifically mentioning locale seems to appear anywhere.  How does CUPS 
find out what locale is set?
