Dr Stephen Turner's website launched

Dr Stephen Turner

This is a site i have completed for a client and was launched over the weekend.

Dr. Turner's approach aims to integrate orthodox medicine with the therapeutic techniques of medical hypnotherapy to promote an holistic approach to genuine healing. His emphasis is down-to-earth and practical. He has particular interest in using hypnotherapy to assist patients in developing a personal sense of self-control based on improved self-esteem. With this development comes a natural and well-grounded trend towards confidently effecting behavioural changes aimed at promoting personal physical and mental health.

The website conforms to Strict xHTML & CSS. It also incorporates a backend system that runs on PHP & mySQL to allow client to edit and update website's content.

Proper way to embed flash content into your site

One of the things i dislike about YouTube is the Flash embed snippet they offer. It's just not valid xHTML and brings many errors. Actually, two things i dislike, the other is poor video quality compare to other sites like Revver or blip.tv but that's not what i want to discuss about.

Anyway, the proper way to embed Flash content is by simply using:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/igWvNUl4S6M&hl=en&fs=1&" width="288" height="128"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/igWvNUl4S6M&hl=en&fs=1&" /> <img src="banner.gif" width="288" height="128" alt="banner" /> </object>
