package (default) access interface declarations

If you declare an interface without a public modifier
making it package (default) access and you don't put any
modifiers on any of its methods or fields, are the methods
still implicitly public and the fields public,static, and final
or are the methods implicitly package (default) access
with the fields being package access, static, and final?
Thanks in advance to whoever can solve the mystery.

The public-ness of the members of an interface doesn't depend on the public-ness of the interface itself. All interface methods are public, and all fields are public static final.
