[uf-discuss] Operator/hresume question

I just re-marked up the last of my experiences (object 5) to have the  
vcard as a child of the experience and it gives me the same display  
in the hResume debug mode (no title or org, or org url).


I realize a lot of this is set in stone already, but from a XHTML  
design perspective, having to embed so many child attributes is  
really disheartening.  It bulks up the code significantly and turns  
normally pretty and clean markup into a mass of divs and spans.  If  
you're within the parent class of hResume, shouldn't you be able to  
combine some of these elements to increase the ease of markup? It  
seems reasonable to me to imagine that all experiences in a resume  
would contain a date and contact of some sort.  Why make it harder to  
accomplish?  Having shown a lot of this markup to various designer  
friends, the response has generally been "Ugh - it looks like that?   
I'm not doing *that* to my code."  I understand the ideals behind it,  
but having to embed the core building blocks as such pains me.


That said, I want it to be correct.  Now object 5 looks like this,  
how would I fix it to display properly?

		<div class="experience vevent">
			<div class="vcard">
		<object data="#erin" class="include"></object>
             <div id="p6" class="position"><h3><span  
class="title">Assistant to the Producer</span>, <span  
class="org">Arctic Jungle Films</span></h3></div>
			<div id="exp_6" class="more exp"><a href="http:// 
www.arcticjungle.com" class="url"><img src="/images/job/arcticjungle/ 
lgo_exho.gif" alt="Exploring Horizons television show." title="Click  
to see the Arctic Jungle Films and Exploring Horizons web site."  
border="0" class="right" width="110" height="97" /></a>
             <p>Entertainment industry, <span

class="dtend">August 1999</span></p>

Also, thank you for taking the time to look at this!
