Hi curly_clare,

Welcome to WmW this place is gold.

Most search engine spiders can't "read" JS. JavaScript links do not get followed and pop up pages do not get in the index. I suspect some to penalise for JS redirect.

Not yet anyway, but it is clear if search engines are to continue to advance, they must start to read and interpret java script, xml, and css. There has been some discussion behind the scences that a couple engines are further along that path than others.

With the advent of the Open source browser Mozilla, there is a default set of routines available for them to modify off the shelf. That's quite a starting point.
