    Quick question. If I use:
    <iframe html page for my iframe> some text </iframe>

    So, if the user visits the page with the browser that supports iframes they only see the iframe ... now I know Google ignores the iframes, however will it ignore the text between open and closed iframe?

    If Google "ignores" the tag, it certainly wouldn't include anything in-between.

    Google stated that they don't index the content that pulls from iframes, simply because the bot can't render it. Pretty much same thing is if you try to view the iframe with the browser that doesn't support it, so if you try to pull the iframe and your browser doesn't support it then it pulls up the text between the tags ... I'm wondering if it's the same thing with search engines, just want to make sure they'll index it.

    I am 99 % sure that google bots see and render iframed material, check here
    Read comments, there is a interesting debate, many opinions and some tests.

    Same idea as a flash frame containing a .swf

    That is a mit, too. Since july 2008 Google is able to render, crawl and index .swf files.
