- A richer way of marking up qualifications would have been nice. If you view the source of my resume you'll see I marked up each subject as a "skill". This, however, doesn't convey any information about the level or grade achieved. The minimal set for the main educational qualifications in England seems to be qualification(level, subject(s), grade(s)). A section from my resume would then be:
<tbody class="qualification"> <tr> <td class="level" rowspan="2"> <abbr title="Advanced">A</abbr> Level </td> <th class="subject" scope="row"> Business Studies </th> <td class="grade"> B </td> </tr> <tr> <th class="subject" scope="row"> Computing </th> <td class="grade"> A </td> </tr> </tbody>
Further investigation might show the need for optional information about awarding bodies and such. Not sure if a qualification element would satisfy the 80/20 condition.

- I and others on the #microformats IRC channel have expressed a concern about the way skills are represented. Introducing unnecessary links into a resume is undesirable, especially when you have to link to a page like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perl to conform to the rel-tag standard while http://www.perl.org might be more intuitive. Non-visual user agents like screen readers will have a great deal of meaningless links to trawl through, and search engines may infer relationships that do not exist.

- Our thoughts:
We would love to be able to mark-up the following data:
Contact Info = hCard
Experience (our issue is with current employment)*
[company name] [position/title] [dates] [location] [Description]
[school] [major] [degree] [dates] [location]
[type] (PD, CPA, JD and so on) [date]
- how do you represent current positions that have no end date? Maybe lack of date means present?

- Suggestion: Reference information - should there be a field of "References", where hCard information would be held for references? Also, perhaps a distinction between three types (e.g. personal (a friend), professional (e.g. previous boss), educational (e.g. university lecturer)) in a similar method to hCard's telephone type distinctions? If this is already accounted for, what method would you suggest for implementing this?
- When working on my resume I tried to mark it up as hResume but I hit a couple of show-stoppers for me. If I had the choice of marking it up to look and behave like I wanted or be a valid hResume I'd chose for former and that's what I ended up having to do. My issues were:
- It's recommended to put the contact hCard in an <address> but address is inline and I wanted to put block elements in there. I could have worked around that with CSS display: but I wanted to be able to render to text with links or w3m which don't support enough CSS for that.
- hResume builds on rel-tag for describing skills, but I didn't want my skills section filled with links (no matter how they're rendered - I don't want them clickable).
