Text within tables are indexed. If the structure of the HTML pushes your text (keywords)down at the site as seen by the engine (look at the source code), it might hurt your ranking though.
>>my content uses a one-cell table to provide a frame around the text which may look nice, but I wonder if it means the content can’t be picked up by a search engine...this comes to mind when I find that although content in a page can be found with a “find” command, it cannot find text in a table. tks, Robert Sharp
