I think magicman is probably refering to using a table so that the code for a left hand side menu appears after main body of the text. I am sure this has come up before, but I can't find in the forums.
Probably goes something like this:
1x1 spacer gif
main page text
I could be way off base though.

We discussed the old table trick in this thread [webmasterworld.com].

Ahhhhh.... very interesting. However, I hate it. Rowspan?! Yuck!
I am skeptical of the premise that the search engine is better off reading the body of the page before the navigation elements instead of after.
I think it depends on the site, what kind of searches you are expecting and optimizing for, and what your navigation area looks like.
