>>browsers can't tell the differance, but it looks differant to the SE's

Browsers WILL see the text if they decide to print the page, and
any nasty competitors that see this (and they will, if they're determined to top your ranking) can get you penalised or even
thrown off by reporting you.

There are better ways to get your keywords in, (Just look at the visible text on Roberts Hot Tubs page, for example) but I do understand the attraction of the "quick fix".
