I am trying to override the Paypal Standard Model using the following files:


<?xml version="1.0"?>


class Me_Paypal_Model_Standard extends Mage_Payment_Model_Method_Abstract{

        //my changed code here


The problem is that the changes I make to the Standard models code do not seem to be getting applied. Have I missed something?
