HTML Resume for the Web
An HTML resume offers several advantages:
There are three ways you can create an HTML resume:
Many serious Web page programmers (professional and otherwise) use a combination of the two methods. HTML coding does offer some advantages. It is cheap; all you need is a text editor like Notepad or SimpleText. It offers ultimate control, which can result in smaller, more flexible pages. On the other hand, using a Web page editor such as Dreamweaver can be faster for some tasks, and it doesn't require an extensive knowledge of HTML. However, many editors create overly large HTML code that will make your page take longer to download, and the code may not work with all browsers.
A combination approach is the most flexible. HTML knowledge can make you more productive in any editor, plus troubleshooting pages (why doesn't it look the way I want it to?) becomes much easier. Also, it will allow you to implement features in your pages that your favorite editor may not support.
