Thanks for your answer. You are correct - that it's mostly that I don't like terminology. Note that the private exponent is called d (as in decrypting) in most resources and the public is called e (as in encrypting). That puzzled me.

It is? Great :) I assumed it works somehow differently = that it uses different way to "encode" then m^d (mod n)...
