Piecewise symbol in 5.1

In the downloadable AddendumV51.pdf, the display of a piecewise 
definition, e.g., of

   Piecewise[{{x < 0, -1}, {x >= 0, 1}}]

is shown with a large curly brace to the left of the pieces.  But in my 
Mathematica 5.1 under Windows 5.1, I see a long vertical bar.

What do you see?
