    Seeing style sheet in my google cache of home page


    Hi
    In my cached page in google I am seeing some of my style sheet code displayed in the title tag. On further investigation when you view the cache source code the title tag reads:
    <title>my normal title tag text <b style="color:black;background-color:#a0ffff">last bit of my title</b></title>

    This is not something I added my self. Is this something new regarding CSS site and formating?

    thanks

    Dont' Panic!

    I can pretty much guarantee that the search phrase you used to find you page in google included the word(s)

    "last bit of my title"

    Google, when displaying your cached page, highlights the search terms you used by injecting inline CSS into the page to change the word colour.

    That's all you're seeing.

    Enjoy.

    Yes thats correct the bg colour and word colour is just that on my page. Is this part of the algo to filter out hidden text using css trickery. hope so.
