To stimulate development, we've completed the Sourceforge CVS to Tigris Subversion migration. Users behind restrictive corporate firewalls can now enjoy full access to the xmlresume repository.

A big thank you to all who have commented, and thanks in advance to those who would like to improve this version.
This is a work in progress, but feedback is appreciated. The doc is available at http://tinyurl.com/3xp3d (sourceforge.net)
