Re: RE: about frames

Since SWISH-E reads META tags, even "bad" html will not prevent "good"
indexing of frame-based pages. If you have SWISH-E setup to index META
tags, then your problem is non-existent. Obviously, page composition that
does not include provisions for older browsers, or non-visual browsers, is
critical in a commercial environment. But having SWISH-E read META tags
instead of body content is a better all-around solution in terms of search
engine indexing -- regardless of browser considerations -- because your
META tags will hopefully contain only relevant keywords and descriptions,
thus improving users' search results in ways that no other method can produce.

All the best from,
