Hi, my resume is in PDF ( made in PDML ). I've had a job interview this afternoon, which went quite well, and have to mail it in Word format for tomorrow morning. Unfortunately I don't have Word and fight with OpenOffice which I used only once or twice.

Of course I could export the PDF in a big image via PhotoShop and put it in a .DOC but the result would be ugly, not scalable and the mammoth file not suitable for email communication.

There's a reward of a whole cholocate cake for anyone who has Word and a bit of spare time, or knows/has a converter, to turn the document from .PDF to .DOC.

Muchas gracias!

I think it lost some of its formating, but here you go.

I'll be waiting for the cake...

Thank you. That's a good starting point I could refine to achieve something as close as possible to the original.

.
I doubt I could send a real cake to Washington DC. At best it would arrive in several pieces, at worst it could get stuck at the customs.

Using a bit of every documents you both provided really helped me. It put me back on the tracks of table base layout ( gasp ) and finally I managed to get something really close to the original PDF. The result is visible here.

Thank you.

ps: Doh! That's incredible how much time it took me to think in table base layout again after almost 2 years of fully CSS+XHTML reasoning.

The customs people would probably eat it, I think they work so much they are all starving...

Thanks. Since you were two to help me, I'll have to slice the cake in 2.
