I really liked Tom's article and was curious what the "T" stood for. I found
this article from the Dallas Morning News suggesting using a staggered block
format (indents) if the two-column approach doesn't work for you.

Oh, and it stands for targeted resume letter.

Hope this helps,

Assume that you must use plain-text email, because you don't know that the
recipient's email client can handle HTML email. That means that you can't
control the layout of the message on a recipient's screen. Specifically, you
can't control the font your message will be shown in, and although you can
insert line breaks, you can't be sure that the reader's email client won't
insert extra line breaks. This means that you can't reliably represent a
table in your message.

Then, how do you present the information from your t-letter in a format that
can be read just (or almost) as easily by a human, independent of any
machine reformatting?
