HTML5, Browser Lab, Typekit and New Design

I just got done with a site redesign. I had a few goals:

  • Fool around with new semantic HTML 5 elements
  • Use web fonts for typography
  • Do some jQuery for interactivity
  • Do a proper mobile version

Semantic HTML5
It seems like such a geeky little thing, writing header instead of div id="header", but I was shocked at the improvement it made. Much fewer divs made the HTML code so much easier to read, and so much easier to detect an improperly closed div.
