Hi wiggything and welcome to WebmasterWorld :)
I am not certain spiders index text within <noframes> tags, so I don't know if that will work for you. That trick is pretty old.
That being said, I know there are a lot of people who do cloak Flash sites, but I haven't heard a lot of stories as to what their results are like, long term.

Many thanks for your reply on this tricky subject
Is there any other way of getting the flash pages indexed in some way. I did think of layering the flash over a text version of the page but was unsure how this would look in older browsers.
any thoughts would be appricated

Actually I'm pretty sure Google at least indexes the text in Flash files. As to the others, SEO people recommend avoiding flash or at least including visible text on the page. The alternative is cloaking.

Thanks volatilegx for your reply
I could do without the flash but stuck with it.
the text in the flash page is called up from an external .txt file so it can be updated by the client, so not sure if this would be spidered!
What is the method of invisable text you are talking about, flash in a layer above plain html? or some other way.
I know that flash is poor if not unable to index but I do need some sort of idexing any help would be apricated

I said visible, not invisible. Normal, everyday, visible text.
