LXer: Document Format Standards Committee "Grinds to a Halt" after OOXML

Published at LXer:

As you may recall, Microsoft's OOXML did not get enough votes to be approved the first time around in ISO/IEC - notwithstanding the fact that many countries joined the Document Format and Languages committee in the months before voting closed, almost all of whom voted to approve OOXML. Unfortunately, many of these countries also traded up to "P" level membership at the last minute to get more influence. And that's turning out to be a real problem.
