OOXML process in deranged finale

Catching my breath, I thought it might be worthwhile to recap a bit on the insane flurry of updates coming through about the ISO votes on Microsoft's OOXML spec. Remember, the deadline is the end of tomorrow.

Catching my breath, I thought it might be worthwhile to recap a bit on the insane flurry of updates coming through about the ISO votes on Microsoft's OOXML spec. Remember, the deadline is the end of tomorrow.

As things stand, it looks like Microsoft may well squeak through to fast-track nirvana. Denmark has changed its vote from No to Yes. The UK may very well do the same. It looks like France is a No, and the same goes for South Africa. South Korea's No appears to have magically mutated into a Yes. Ditto the Czech Republic. Chile's abstaining again. There's an unpleasant whiff emanating from Poland's Yes vote. And an almighty stench surrounding the whole sorry affair.

Democratic primaries? Pah! This is where the action is...
