DHTML & Search Engines

Question:
Can you provide any insight on whether spider-based search engines, like AltaVista and Inktomi, can index DHTML text?

Answer:
The phrase “DHTML text” can mean different things to different people, so I can’t give you a solid yes or no answer. Your best bet is to try looking at your page with all scripting and images turned off, and check what displays. If your text is there, the spiders should be able to see it.
