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

This is correct. 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.

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.
