More about "mma" becoming "Mathematica"

Roger Germundsson of Wolfram pointed out that the transformation 
should not take place unless "mma" is preceded by a blank.

He is right.

However, Mathematica seems to regard ä (an a with two dots above it) 
and ö (an o with two dots above it) as blanks. They are printed all 
right but a word like "bestämma" (means "determine") comes out as 
"bestäMathematica".

Thanks! to several persons who have now described to me how to edit 
the default style sheet to turn off the mma transformation (see Ted 
Ersek's reply RE: [mg21483]).
