Some doped semiconductors have recently been shown to display superconductivity or weak ferromagnetism. Here we investigate the electronic structure and condi- tions for magnetism in a supercells of cubic XW26O81, where X=Nb,V and Re. The undoped material is an insulator, and although the slightly doped material is a metal, it is far from the Stoner criterion of magnetism. The conditions of a localized density-of-states (DOS) which varies rapidly with the energy, resemble those of doped hexaborides. The virtual crystal approximation is used to vary the doping level. A small moment appears if the Fermi energy, EF , coincides with a large derivative of the DOS.
