<SCRIPT> Tag Indexing?
From Mike C on 3 Dec '99
I would like to verify that it does not really matter where scripts are placed on the page when it comes to a SE indexing a page. I have read that the appropriate place for most scripts is in the head, or the body for scripts taht need to output to the page. However, I don't want search engines to be giving keywords that appear in the body of my page a low rank just because they appear after a lot of code.

Are the major search engines smart enough to disregard words that fall between <script> tags, even when the script tags fall within <body> tags?
