Short list:
http://nd.edu/
http://gameday.nd.edu/
http://conductor.nd.edu/
http://onmessage.nd.edu/
http://research.nd.edu/

Pretty much everything over the past year or more, so dozens beyond what's listed above. Also, not every site that we're building strictly uses the new semantic tags. There are some instances where it's still safer to use a div, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Erik, could you give me hints (or better, URLs) as to which sited at ND are built in HTML5? I'm sure I could work it out by looking at the source code, but I would be looking for a while.

Comment by Rich Powell on November 14, 2011 at 12:09am

Watch out for print styling in IE. The parser can't understand HTML5.

This is very hard to work around.

Comment by Erik Runyon on November 11, 2011 at 4:05pm

1. Let the design, not device sizes dictate your breakpoints.

2. Watch the download size of your site. Think back to the days when people were still on modems.

3. Format your markup in an order that makes sense when formatted for small screens.

4. IE will play nicer if you're developing large-screen down, but try to do 320 up.

5. CSS background-width is your friend.

6. Read Responsive Web Design by Ethan Marcotte before doing anything.

7. Subscribe to Luke Wroblewski's blog: lukew.com

Erik, any advice?

We're about to undertake a top-to-bottom-side-to-side web redesign. HTML 5 and CSS3 figure to our tools of choice. Any gaps, glitches, or gotchas in the mix?

Our department at Notre Dame has been building all of our new sites in HTML5 for the past year or so, including ND.edu.

Comment by Rich Powell on November 10, 2011 at 7:25pm

Who out there has implemented HTML5 on their website(s)?

I'm interested to exchange experiences from anyone who has done large-scale HTML5 or CSS3 work.

Rich, nice job! Colorful, yet rich and elegant. No pun intended. :)

Website Translation Services

I've been tasked with getting some of our website translated into Spanish and Chinese. We had some pages translated into Spanish several years ago, but since multi-lingual was not part of our workflow, the content on those pages quickly became out-of-date and were just recently removed from the site.Do any of you have pages translated to other languages? Do you use a 3rd-party service to do it, or someone on campus with those skills? Or an automated service like Google translate?For those of…See More

"Thanks for responding, Erik! I agree and like your point about it being a different kind of piece without a call to action. Those projects have their place, but is sometimes hard to justify carving out the time for them."

"We did one in 2012 and 2013, but not 2014. We initially got caught up in the buzz because everyone was doing them, and it seemed like a fun idea. But this last cycle we were so busy with other projects we couldn't justify carving out the time.…"

Dynamically adding text to a PDF

We're looking for a service or tool that will let employees create their own business card and have a press-ready PDF sent to our print shop. Ideally the employee would type in their info into a form, and that text would be dropped into a predefined PDF template. I know this falls under the "web to print" industry, but I haven't found any workable services yet. Thanks!See More

Redirect Management Tool

Looking for some advice and hoping you guys might help me out. Do any of you know of a tool or service that will provide an interface to webserver redirect configuration? Looking for a frontend tool that would allow redirects to be configured by non-programmers/developers.While this is likely a php/apache solution I am not opposed to standing up a windows box and doing this via IIS/asp.net. Many thanks!See More
