The above may be a bit muddled, so let me try to clarify it.

If you are creating a chronological resume and you want to include no more
than 10-15 years, you can do that and yet still include more experience than
you might think. You do this by having an entry in your resume that spans
the years you want to cover. In that listing, which might say "1986-1994",
you could list in bullets the jobs you did in such a way that you otherwise
could not if you were restricted to meeting the goals of:

- Creating a chronological resume
- Including no more than 10-15 years

I hope this makes more sense. I find that I am a bit nervous because I
haven't worked in over a year and I'm a bit jittery. Got to cut back on the
caffeine! LOL.
