I will do - in some ways it's more to do with the fact I *have* to
link to an external site just to indicate what 'PHP' is, which seems
like a heavy load to place on the user.

I can only really put my own CV on there, my only evidence is
anecdotal based on looking at a lot of (UK) developer's CVs lately.

I think your message has crossed with my reply to Ted  - this isn't on
the faq page because it's an existing issue on the hresume-issues

I've no objection to leaving off dtend as a solution but I think it
would need to be added to the hResume spec as a departure from iCal.
