General Comments

    • I used hCalendar 1.0's optional "description" element to include a short paragraph of text about each section of education/employment. The examples on the hResume page could be updated to mention this ability.
    • 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.
