I haven't got knowledge of that. Maybe some swedish member could answer to that. All I know is that the court uses the titles at the guest lists etc.

This is correct. I cannot find an English translation of the law, but this article briefly explains the then-proposition, which became law in July of that year.

The Swedish court and other royal courts continue to use legally abolished titles of nobility and royalty (Prince of Hohenzollern, Prince of Greece, Archduke of Austria, etc).

The swedish nobility didn't get abolished in 2003 it just lost the last few privileges that set it apart from the rest of the population. Riddarhuset, the association of the nobility is now an organisation like any other. The noble titles are still recognised and it's still fully legal to use them although in a country where you're basically on a first name basis with everyone that rarely happens.
That said the nobility still owns large chunks of the arable land and forests in Sweden and even though the system of fideicommis was abolished in the sixties there's still several noble families that have a dispensation from parliament and continues to run their estates according to those old rules of inheritance.

Thank you very much for the clarification.
Abolished does not necessarily mean outlawed, but simply not recognized by the state, as Mbruno put it. Does the Swedish state continue to regulate nobility? Are noble rank and titles used in legal documents?

Peoples titles and rank are afaik not used in official documents in Sweden. That goes not only for noble titles but also for titles as Dr, Mr etc...
No the state does not regulate noble titles anymore
