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:
(/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.texlive/tex/latex/lm/lmodern.sty)

with TeXLive:
(/usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-dist/tex/latex/lm/lmodern.sty)

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?
