DHTML and Browsers?

DHTML <tbody> scrolling in the <table>



5:25 pm on May 15, 2001 (gmt 0)

(I hope I'm in the right topic section for this question.)
With DHTML we can use the tag <tbody> that will control the table size and alow us to scroll inside the table.(Make it look like a frame in a HTML page.)

Can someone tell me if all spiders will crawle on DHTML the same way it does on HTML?

Thank you for all feedback.

I think spiders will be fine with it, but I doubt the effect you're describing will work on all browsers... with DHTML, I find it often either works on Netscape 4.X or Netscape 6, but haven't found any effects that work on both.

Know which browsers your target audience is using, or make very sure that the page is still readable if the DHTML doesn't work.

Thank you for your help Mivox!

This will work with IE perfect. Netscape 4 is showing a long scroll but the page looks fine and Netscape 6 supports this DHTML tag like IE those.

Can any one confirm what Mivox is saying on the subject to be sure that I won't get poor ranking on the SE.

Actually the use of the <div> tag allows for some pretty cool seo techniques. By placing your text and all your <tbody> stuff inside a <div> you can move all the text up the page higher.
