Pushing the content to the top

Msg#: 662 posted 1:55 pm on May 10, 2001 (gmt 0)


I remember, not very long ago, a thread on getting the content to be seen first by a spider on a given page. I have done a search and for the life of me can not find the thread.

I have been hammering on some of the solutions I thought I had noted from the thread and I am having no luck.

I have a page called jewelry_education_care2.htm on my domain listed in my profile. I have been unable to get the content table to appear at the top when using Brett's tool the spider sim on SEW.

Any help would be appreciated. I was trying to use rowspan and column span but just ended up banging my head repeatedly.

I thought I had this one down from the thread but alas...

do a WmW search on CSS text positioning... I think that's what you're referring to. You use CSS positioning to place the text at a specific point on the page, while having it come first in the actual HTML code.

A different approach than what I was trying but cool. Thank you Mivox :). Will do.

This is probably the thread you remember, about the table trick:

I've been using absolute positioning for this HTML rearrangement on some sites. But it can be buggy in some browsers, when page layouts get complex. I was working on a page last week that just wouldn't render properly in Netscape 4.08 on Win2K, and I was lucky to have seen it on that particular combination.

So, I find there's plenty of use for non-CSS methods.
