Thanks Brian! This is very generous of you. I've put up an unstyled  
version of what I have completed so far :


And I did include FN in other sections of my resume, but not in the  
example I sent to the list.

One thing I am uncertain about, is whether I should put FN in with  
the ORG, or if that should be separate, and for my name. My updated  
example would read:

	<dl class="experience vevent">
		<dt class="summary vcard"><span class="title">Web Developer</span>,  
<a href="http://chnm.gmu.edu" class="url org fn">Center for History  
and New Media</a></dt>
		<dd class="description">
			<p class="time"><abbr class="dtstart" title="20051216">December  
2005</abbr>-<abbr title="<?php echo date('Ymd'); ?>">present</abbr></p>

As you can see, I've put URL, ORG, and FN in the same element. This  
actually doesn't seem logical, now that I think about it. Is this  
correct, or no?

You'll also probably note that I'm using PHP to echo the current date  
for the DTEND for "present." This is what I initially started doing,  
before I sent my initial inquiry to the list.

And there are a number of things that I haven't added yet, and things  
that are on here that I haven't marked up with microformats  
(specifically, my publications with citation microformat)

Thanks for any help you or anyone else can offer.
