Lodahl's blog: Denmark will vote NO !

01 September 2007

Denmark will vote NO !

It's official now. Denmark will vote no with (64 pages of) comments. Here is the press release in Danish.

We have won this battle, but the war is not over yet.

I just got an email from Dansk Standard that Denmark will vote no with comments. The 64 pages of comments was obviously too heavy and too important.

Dansk Standard has been under heavy pressure over the last week, because of the Swedish case.

Translater here.

(*) sadly, here at argentina, IRAM didn't know anything about DIS 29500 ( 0% interest in this XML stuff ), so it will abstain :-(

i hope that the next time my country be more participative in this discussions

It certainly makes me happy when I see a standards body technically assess the proposal - as it should be done.

Thankyou Denmark.
