>From previous conversations on this list, I did go back and "style" my
resume, just in case anybody's looking. Of course, most of the time I'm
interviewing for solo positions, and the hiring manager has been barely
aware of styles of any kind. Still, I mean, why not? My resume isn't really
a one-off, since I am updating it all the time, so I actually do need to be
maintainable. If someone checks, fine. If not, it realy didn't take that
long to do.
