It seems, though, that setting the dtend date to the document's
publication date would imply a specific end date for the job that
isn't accurate. For instance, if I published my resume a month ago,
but I'm still employed at the same position, I wouldn't want to use
<abbr class="dtend" title="20060919">present</abbr>.
Likewise, I see problems with using PHP (or something else) to
generate the current date, because that also implies a specific
ending date for the position. So, if I used, say, <?php date(Ymd); ?

title="20061019">present</abbr>. This is essentially saying that my
tenure at the position ended on October 19, 2006, which is also
Of course, I'm failing to offer a plausible solution to the issue; my
apologies for that. :)
Brian Suda recommended using "duration" for dates when i asked about
historical dates a while back. Is there something similar in iCal
or in RFC 2445 for "repetition"...that is, can you say that an event
repeats perpetually?. I know in iCal itself, you can set certain
events to repeat every day, or specific days/times. Is there
something similar in RFC 2445 or ISO dates that covers this?
