Someone has notified us of the procedure in Denmark, the Danish standardisation institute has published a webpage about OOXML. Deadline for written submissions is 2nd of July, while there is a meeting organised on the 11th at 10am at Dansk Standard.
Microsoft has subverted advisory group that will make recommendation for Denmark's position on OOXML. Out of 30 members of the advisory group there are 15 Microsoft gold partners, 1 Microsoft Business Solution partner and ofcourse Microsoft themself. We can only hope the Danish National Standards body, Dansk Standard, have enough integrity not to yield to this kind of block vote.
Advisory group members:
CBS, Microsoft, Netcompany, Conzern, Thydata, ITEK, IBM, KMD, IT og telestyrelsen, NNIT, Tectura, PKF Consulting, Avanade, Sirius IT, TOPNORDIC, Dansk IT, Traen Informationssystemer, OSL, Vision People, Munk IT, Knowledge Cube, Proactive, Ementor, Liga, Fujitsu, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, DKUUG, Århus Kommunes 5. magistrat (Børn og Unge), Danmarks Tekniske Universitet.

This makes it even more important that respond to the hearing even if it means resorting to form letters.
