TEOMA engine and URL arguments on pages?
I've heard Google now handles them, how about Teoma?

I've heard reports that Google, since the Florida update, is doing a pretty good job of spidering pages that use URL arguments (search arguments) to control the delivery of content.

But what about the TEOMA engine?

(If anyone knows about Ask Jeeves and AllInTheWeb that would be great too.)

It's not clear if you're asking if it does a "good job" or if you just want to know if it does it.

They all crawl and include dynamic url's in their index. Plus AskJeeves.com&Teoma share a crawler. From what I've seen, Google is the smartest in figuring which dynamic url's to include, but that's just an opinion. AskJeeves/Teoma is so "dynamic friendly" that it actually crawls and indexes some of it's own SERPs (link in a SERP is a link to a SERP).

Except for Google, paying almost ensures inclusion. Otherwise, inclusion is less predictable (but still possible).

In any event, I still think static-looking url's are best.
