I've been trying to use CSS to have certain paragraphs appear at the bottom of the page, but in the source code they are at the top. It can be very difficult to do depending on your template. However the TFoot tag can be placed anywhere in the table tag and will be displayed at the bottom. Do you think Googlebot understands tags like TFoot enough to weight the text as bottom dwelling?

Thanks for your insights!

I usually create absolutely positioned divs to place text to top or bottom, or else. I think G. does not care, provided you use readable text (it's size, color, etc.)

Moby_Dim, do you do this with CSS?

What do you think about SSI to do this? I've been wanting to do this a long time but never got around to it. Seems like it would shrink the HTML code of a page a bit, and save you from having to change the "footer" or bottom text of all pages every time you need to change something by just editing the CSS file or SSI file.
Thanks.
