Thanks, I should've been more explicit that it was just a quick brain
dump and a few searches; sorry I forgot hResume!

Thanks for filling in the gap there.

All good to know :)

Would this be a good practical example to work through how hResume
looks from the perspective of the Microformats 2.0 ideas in
http://microformats.org/wiki/microformats-2 ? Can you give a simple
list of properties and entry types (or whatever they are called) that
are needed for hResume descriptions?
