CV / Resume - Any new methods of storing/collaborating?

Hello Friends,
Thought of asking details about any advanced methods of storing/maintaining your CV?
The issues I'm encountering are
1. Word document -> When I''m updating, a copy needs to be updated and mailed everytime. Also Microsoft Office is not available at every place when required.
2. Open office document -> I'm having Open office in my system and hence the .doc extension is not always compatible especially tables/columns if I've done in Microsoft Office.. Also problems mentioned in (1) due to portability
3. Google docs -> This is also not compatible with (1) always. When I download into .doc the formatting get's odd or when i upload back to google docs, it looks awkward
4. PDF -> this is the best method of storing, but editing is tough and also not every agency/jobsite accepts pdf. Though at present I use PDF method
5. HTML -> I haven't tried, but would like to know and interoperability/conversion

If you guys know a better option or a good template which is compatible with OO and Microsoft Office with good interoperability, it would be very helpful..

How about using iProfile.org, or Linked.com?

Or storing your CV (in whatever format) on Jobserve.com so that you can direct people to the dedicated page?

hmm.. i'm not purely looking into a location or storage area.. I was mentioning of storing formats which can be editable as well.
But I'vent tried linked.com, let me have a look into it as well..

Or even LinkedIn.com. Sorry, my mistake.

:)

With LinkedIn.com & iProfile.org, for example, as other similar sites will exist, you can maintain your details by form-based entry that is then viewable as a HTML (web) page.

You can then maintain from wherever you are.

CWJobs.co.uk, I think, presents a similar service & offers the viewer the ability to convert your details to a Microsoft Word document. So, you could edit online & let the viewer create the destination file on demand.

PS. Using Adobe Portable Document File [PDF] format may restrict the agency using the enclosed text/content for their own database(s).

You could consider using Rich Text Format [RTF] to allow for a wider range of supported applications being able to read the content.

There is always ASCII text as well, of course! :)

Thanks mate..
But still I'm looking for a sharable doc with collaborative options..
The ideal one in my mind is google doc document which is compatible with MS word, OO writer etc.. A good inter-operable template would be fine..
