FYI: For voting only one representative of a company can cast a vote  
counting for the company or organization he represents. This basically  
means that I, for instance, am not a Working Group Member, but part of one  
Member that has joined the Working Group.

As for Opera, we internally decided that Lars Erik Bolstad will cast votes  
and make descisions on behalf of Opera within the Working Group when  
needed. I would expect that other Member companies / organizations have  
similar policies.

Section 3.4 of the W3C Process document discusses this issue in more
