hResume issues

These are externally raised issues about hResume with broadly varying degrees of merit. Thus some issues are REJECTED for a number of obvious reasons (but still documented here in case they are re-raised), and others contain longer discussions. Some issues may be ACCEPTED and perhaps cause changes or improved explanations in the spec. Submitted issues may (and probably will) be edited and rewritten for better terseness, clarity, calmness, rationality, and as neutral a point of view as possible. Write your issues well. — Tantek

    1. Support for Awards and for Service sections are not currently implemented
      • I have attempted to use the Experience tag, however am unclear whether this will break things. Please see the example here. --jeffmcneill 04:09, 2 Oct 2007 (PDT)

    1. rel-tag can be difficult to implement for "skill"
      • In Draft, version 0.1 it is required that each "skill" be marked up with rel-tag. While this is a good idea, and easy to do for individuals, it poses some challenges in the real world for large publishers of user generated resume data. If rel-tag was optional for "skills", it would be easier to implement.

    1. With regard to the "skill" attributes in a resume: often skills have an indication of the level of attainment - be it as a descriptive "tag" or a duration denoting the length of experience of the referenced skill. In fact, abstracting out a "skill" microformat might be useful for re-use in the job-listing (Vacancy?) microformat. That way, job requirements can be married to CVs. Although not a job-site, I like's skill inventory feature (that captures both a level and length of experience) although I think its implementation is horrendous.

    1. There's currently no way to say 'present' in hCalendar
      • Many job experience listings will include jobs that the person is presently working at. Ciaran McNulty correctly pointed out that a blank DTEND does not indicate that the event is still ongoing. We need to find an easy way to make this work in hResume.
  • open issue! 2006-10-19 raised by Steve Ganz.
    1. There's currently no way to distinguish different hCard types in hResume
      • In Draft, version 0.1 it is specified that a parent element of address should be used to the distinguish an hCard as the subject's contact info. This proves problematic to implement because address cannot contain block level elements. To avoid sacrificing semantic value by restricting the child elements of an hCard to inline elements, we need to settle on an alternate method to classify a subject's hCard as thier contact info.
      • In any given experience there may be one or more hCards. One which would be the subject's hCard for that experience and the other for a supervisor or manager, etc. We need a way to distinguish different hCards in a given experience.
  • Agreed, when adding my references in hCard to the bottom of my hResume it became apparent there was no way I could mark 'my' hCard as the one belonging to the subject of the hResume. Perhaps @class="hcard subject" as a child of the hResume? Ciaran McNulty

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.

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.
