There's nothing wrong with maintaining two different formats of resume.

I know that as programmers we try to be as lazy as possible, but  
consider that I, as a hiring manager, consider your resume to be an  
example of what work you are capable of as a programmer.  I almost  
always look at the raw HTML of the resumes I'm sent.  If it's crap  
HTML, then that indicates something to me about the candidate.
