Aloha folks,

My hResume marked-up resume at
http://jeffmcneill.com/microformats/hresume-jeffmcneill.html is
getting validation errors in Operator because I do not have a
'summary' element for the education and service list items. I am using
the <abr class='title'> markup to identify titles and an additional
'summary' would be redundant or unnecessary in terms of information

I read in a previous discussion somewhere that 'summary' is not
officially required by the iCalendar spec. Would this be a case when
it could be disregarded, or is it possible to make it optional as part
of hCalendar?

Or is there a suggested way of nesting the markup to prevent redundancy?

(I would like to point out that in the Allsopp Microformats book on p.
215 there is precisely the 'summary' element missing in the 'vevent
education' example in the second list item.)

I would be grateful for any thoughts on this.

Jeff McNeill
