    Hi Doug,

    What do you think about the petition that was created online in Portugal so as not to approve the OOXML format. Did you see that in other countries?

    There was also some controversy regarding the number of people in the Portuguese technical commission that approved the format (20), which some considered not to be representative. Would you like to comment?

    Hi Tiago,

    I've seen the petitions organized by FFII, the people who have offered a cash reward to those who most effectively influence the ISO process.  Was there one of those in Portugal as well?

    Regarding the Portugal technical committee membership, I don't have anything to add to the comments that have appeared on various blogs.
