The commonwealth fights back against OOXML?

Thanks to Roy for pointing this one out. A region in the US has a somewhat bizarre ideal (with little or no hope of success I would imagine):

The Government of British West Florida is striving for Dominion Status as a Commonwealth Realm, on a par with Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Antigua and Barbuda, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and The Bahamas.

As well as wanting West Florida to become a member of the Commonwealth they have apparently decided to sign up to the CONSEGI Declaration declaring ISO pretty much irrelevant where IT standards are concerned.

The Dominion of British West Florida Joins Brazil, South Africa, Venezuela, Ecuador, Cuba, and Paraguay in condemning the actions of the ISO/IEC in rejecting the appeals lodged against the approval of DIS29500.

All Dominion of British West Florida Government offices are required to seek first systems that support ISO/IEC 26300.

Nice one Bo. Perhaps they should suggest Gordon does the same thing. It might help his popularity rating. Or it certainly won’t do it any harm…
