I'm switching in this email from the other Subject: accept my apology, if 
this is not straight.

Then, what should one do to make sure that CM Super is the default? How to 
know which (CM Super or Latin Modern) is the default for a TeX 
distribution and usage? And how to switch from one to another, if needed?

Before, I used to Download CM Super via the i-Installer and then lived on 
the believe that that was the default for the teTeX on my machine.

If I include \usepackage{lmodern} in the preamble of a tex file (e.g., 
test1-url-lmodern.tex), then in the output buffer I see something like:

with gwTeX:

with TeXLive:

If I comment out \usepackage{lmodern} in the tex file, I do not see which 
one is the default (CM Super or Latin Modern, etc).

By the way, what would be the declaration in the preamble of a tex file 
for CM Super?
