I tried a resume myself, just to see the results, and you were right on. 
  First off, when I scrolled up and down things disappeared and I had to 
bring them back into view by selecting all.  Also, it didn't seem to 
support the bulleted list properly.
Personally, I'm going to subscribe to the koffice list and see if there 
are any workarounds.  Abiword, for instance, seems to import it just fine.
