We are building a new section on HTMLGoodies (sister site to this one). I need some help and in return, a site you've built might get a free link.
What I'm looking for:
I'm looking for sites built using HTML5 or CSS3 features. If you've built a cool site that uses either of these, then I want to know! What I need (and this should be easy if you built the site) are:
The URL of the site
A description (text) of what elements of HTML5 or CSS3 you used.
Information on why you chose HTML5
Anything cool about why/how/where you used HTML5/CSS3 (brag a bit!)
What category your site falls into: entertainment, multimedia, reference, social, education, productivity, sales, other?
Does your site support IE pinning? (if you are not sure, then the answer is no)
What browsers is your site optimized for? (Firefox, IE, Opera, Safari, Chrome, other)
You can pick more than one answer on the multiple choice questions.
I'm looking to get a couple of site ideas TODAY if possible. We are wanting to launch this new section very, very soon - like possibly next week -- so this is a chance to get your site "spotlighted" among the first ones!
I'd prefer business or topics sites versus personal blogs and such.
Since I am a newbie at programming and developing, it is probably a lousy site, though I have been told its cool. It's my learning site.
Check it out and give me some pointers, please.
This site is in HTML 5 and CSS3 still working on some features but its up and running right now.
I used sections and articles alot, I also used the nav tags and header tags when appropriate. I love CSS3 more than the html5 though. Rounded corners and drop shadows sold it for me. I remember having to go into photo shop and making the shadows for websites by hand and then using css to lay it out. CSS3 made it so much easier. Also I love love love the doctype declaration for HTML5. It is actually something I dont have to have a snippet for. My site is primarily optimized for Firefox and Chrome but in IE 9 it checks out just fine. Only thing is the check boxes look a little funny in IE but hell as long as the layout is supported im not complaining. My site does not support IE pinning nor do I care to add such features in the future. I am not fond of IE so I try and not tailor any features for IE into my sites. All i care about in IE is that my layout shows up normal and thats it. Extra features can be forgotten about for them. The site I created is or services for Dog Training. The client also has a custom built admin section to add in Useful links and News articles and will be able to update the Training times as well. Going to add a log in system built by hand for clients and live weather maps as well for the different training locations. I will be using html5's video tag for the video page once I convert the mp4's into something firefox will handle.

WYSIWYG editors will never beat my hand written code!!!! Learn to do it in notepad and learn how to actually control your website! Current Project http://www.jmcanineservices.com
Yes I've designed quite a few web sites using HTML5 and CSS3. One example is
* Used the header, nav, section elements
* I am an early adopter of new technologies and since I am offering training in HTML5 and CSS I have to put my money where my mouth is
* Use CSS3 transitions in the top navigation elements, box-shadow, border-radius
* Site provide online training
* No IE pinning so far
* Optimized for Firefox, IE, Opera, Safari, Chrome and support mobile devices
@ornament, please stay on the topics.
The site you are promoting is not even designed in HTML5 and even when one looks at the HTML of your web pages, there are too many divs for such a simple layouts, many broken links and unfinished work.
