Time to go back to ASCII resumes :-)

If you are hiring content writers, yes you are being too picky for most
of those points. If you are hiring editors, maybe not.

Besides, if you think the resumes are bad, check out some corporate job

Corporate ADD is forcing resumes to become volatile documents written
on the fly. Managers want to see all their buzzwords on Page One. So
candidates tailor the resumes for each job description, no matter how
bizarre the job description may be. Often the resume is edited in
non-ideal conditions (like on the job, maybe not at your own computer).
So I could easily forgive a few non-critical glitches in the resume -
just like you would forgive minor errors in a two-hour rush job you
might assign to one of your writers.

Also note that recruiters often rewrite candidate resumes.
