Norway Decides: No with Comments on OOXML…

“Norway Standards has released its decision on OOXML. It’s No
with Comments. Essentially, they are concerned about too many
technical issues and wish to see them fixed before it becomes a
standard. They included their comments with suggestions for some
fixes, which they’ll discuss in February at the ‘ballot resolution’
meeting along with the comments from other countries, and if the
problems are fixed after that, then they would vote for it. So they
call it a ‘conditional yes’ vote, but that’s more for politeness
and to show that they are not in principal against the standard, if
it worked.

to translate it for us…”
