I recently went to apply to a job by the title of "web developer" on Careers.Stackoverflow.com and when I went to upload my HTML resume, I got an error that it's not allowed.
I really try to prove that I know HTML and CSS with my HTML resume. It covers edge cases such as printing the exact same way as it looks on the screen and such.
I think that converting my HTML resume to a PDF would actually hurt my chances of getting the job because they can't immediately know I know HTML and CSS well and can do web design.
I really do not understand the reasoning behind not allowing HTML resumes though.
Is there someone who can explain why they don't allow them, or if there is some technical limitation to them or what?
