Was HR-XML considered
Question: has any consideration for hr-xml (http://www.hr-xml.org) been given in the production of hResume microformat? I tried looking around the site but couldn't find anything specific. As someone working in the recruitment marketing industry I can see distinct benefits for the two formats converging. Strawbleu 12:09, 15 Dec 2006 (GMT) (originally asked on hResume feeedback page.)
- Answer: Yes, HR-XML was documented as part of the research done into pre-existing resume formats as part of the microformats The microformats process in the development of a h-resume microformat. Since HR-XML was developed more a priori than a posteriori (see Why examples first), it is likely to contain much that is not used by the 80% of resume publishers and thus it is unlikely that the two formats will ever converge. However, as more examples are found of new resume features, they are likely to be included in hResume over time, and HR-XML will be one of several formats that will be used as sources for vocabulary re-use.
hResume is the classic microformats predecessor for h-resume. Work on hResume is documented at the following for historical purposes. Much of the general discussion and research likely still applies.
- hResume examples in the wild - an on-going list of websites which use hResume.
- hResume FAQ - if you have any questions about hResume, check here.
The hResume specification is a work in progress. As additional aspects are discussed, understood, and written, they will be added. These thoughts, issues, and questions are kept in separate pages.
