Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] CV/Resume in DocBook?

When I started using xmlresume I noticed that there was no active development, so I added or changed whatever I needed and didn't bother to get those modifications integrated upstream. You should also keep in mind that a project like xmlresume is hard to maintain in general as everyone's interest wanes significantly as soon as they have a new position. That said (and being in a new position for the next three years...) I'll be happy to provide my modifications to anyone who wants to maintain (or just have) them. > I personally use "Content-Type: text/enriched" > (<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enriched_text>) > for the gap between DocBook files and flat text files, > and I edit that kind of documents using emacs, > which has a dedicated mode for that. > emacs creates PostScript for those documents, > and "ps2pdf" helps me rendering PDF files from that. > Of course, the output looks rather poor, > but it's good enough for what I use it for. > Another excellent sub-DocBook markup is provided by Emacs Muse (http://mwolson.org/projects/EmacsMuse.html). It uses a Wiki-like syntax and provides backends to create HTML, DocBook, and LaTeX (among others). Printed HTML is often good enough, while DocBook and LaTeX output provide paths to more sophisticated printable output. regards, Markus -- Markus Hoenicka firstname.lastname@example.org (Spam-protected email: replace the quadrupeds with "mhoenicka") http://www.mhoenicka.de
