Hi Rafael,

Thanks for the reply. Comments inline:

I apologize if I made it sound that way.

What I meant was that, on a 1.1 or 2.0 .NET install on Windows, the 
culture is set, I assume, based on the culture settings of the computer. 
  For example, to change the Culture on a Windows Smartphone, you have 
to change it on the Smartphone itself.

So it seems like CultureInfo is picked up from the underlying system. 
What I was wondering is a) if that was indeed correct and if so b) if 
there is a way to get Mono to automatically pick it up as well.

If not, we'll just platform exclude the tests.

Thanks again!

Cory Foy
