For another demonstration, graysonline.com (one of Australia's largest e-commerce sites) is 100% ASP.NET and 100% XHTML1.1.

This is the case study we use in the talk I linked to.

Well, I made a foray into ASP.NET (and C#, at the same time)
for the first time ever recently, and the only problem I
experienced was persuading the compiler to accept my input
as UTF-8 and not ASCII; once I discovered the necessity
for the BOM, I had no other problems.  Below is a link to the
result, which is clearly a work in progress yet which also
demonstrates that one can write valid dynamic web forms in
C# using the ASP.NET infrastructure :
