If, like me, you're finding it hard to keep up with the cliff-hanger that is the attempted fast-tracking of OOXML, what with countries announcing their decisions in a non-coordinated way, here are two sites that do all the hard work so that you can see what's happening.

The self-explanatory ISO-Vote.com has a nice graphical representation with different colours representing “yes” and “no” votes. Meanwhile, Open Malaysia has a more complicated tabular representation that tries to capture not just how countries are voting, but how their votes changed from last time. Gripping stuff.
