Submission + - Sweden Declares OOXML vote 'invalid' (

Xemu writes: "On Tuesday, Slashdot reported that Microsoft bought Sweden's vote on OOXML. Late Thursday night, in a surprising move, the Swedish Standards Institue (SIS) decided to declare the vote 'invalid' on the formal grounds that the SIS president Lars Flink has determined with certainty that one person voted twice. The Swedish work group now says it is in practice impossible for Sweden to have time to vote again before Sunday, when the international vote is concluded. Sweden will abstain. (Hot of the presses, Swedish news sources only. Sorry)"
