CV pages are never easy to produce, as it's got to be informative
and been pleasing to the eye. This any colours that are used should
be there to guide the eye, and not focus the eye. I've revised
my existing CV page to give the page given below. I've used a
dark background to focus the eye on the main text, and then used
a white background (which emulates a paper-based format). Along
with this I've used a pleasant orange colour to define the columns.
I've kept my favouriate graphic (the Bill's CV), as I really like
the font that I've used in it. I forget which one it is, but it
is a very classy looking one.
