With the economy the way it is I would strongly reconsider resigning unless it's absolutely inevitable.  Finding ANY job right now is not a good time.  That said, approach it with respect and don't burn bridges.  Approach it like a good police report and answer any anticipated questions with fact.  Talk to folks you really respect with more tenure than you... make sure you trust them and they have your best interests in mind before you commit to this.  It's never too late to take an extra step until that letter is in the hand of the person cutting your final check.  I don't know your situation so it's tough to address it better than this.

Truly wise words...do NOT quit a job unless you already have a replacement for it unless it's a "quit or be fired" situation.
