Sanders expert report is ready
,----[ Quote ]
| Helge Sander, Danish Minister of Science and Technology
| earlier this year asked an expert committee to look into
| the technical and legal implications of the introduction of
| two standards for documents in the government. The report
| is now ready.
| In addition, the ISO approval of OOXML is concidered as the
| final conclusion that the OOXML is an open and appropriate
| standard. This despite the fact that even Dansih Standards
| recognizes that the approval process was perhaps not
| completely clean and OOXML might not be quite as qualified
| as it seems.
| The experts completely ignores the world around us. I
| believe that we in Denmark can't take such decisions
| without first looking around us. The countries which we
| usually compare ourselves with, may have been through
| similar problems. But the report is also completely
| ignoring this.
