    "" The drama continues. Last week, "yes" votes placed by Hungary and
    Sweden were called into question by authorities in those countries over
    concerns about voting irregularities. In Sweden's case, a leaked e-mail
    from a Microsoft employee promised "market benefits" and increased access
    to Microsoft resources to members if they voted in favor of approval.
    Hungary is redoing its vote after allegations that Microsoft seeded its
    panel with yes-men. ""
