Slideshows And 'hidden' Text

However, that's a rule of thumb. If you place 99% of the text in the "hidden" section, that might be seen as deceptive or sneaky.
Also, you do NOT want to place any DIVs outside the visible coordinates. That is, all margin placements should have positive PX values. Google stated last year that they will now deem negative placements as sneaky or deceptive because it is impossible for them to determine intent for those kinds of situations.
If you're in real doubt, you could embed the slideshow in an iframe and as long as you don't point any crawlable links to the iframed page you should be fine -- but the content won't be indexed and it won't assist in helping determine relevance for your page.

Do you have any links to further reading on this? (Googled it and wasn't finding anything) I use negative values fairly often for various reasons...

These divs would be display:none until their time comes and are shown. I do want the text to be indexed (that's the idea behind adding the text as foreground to the images instead of just adding the text to the images themselves). It's basically a standard slideshow you see everywhere, but instead of the slides being an image, they're divs with text and the background is the image, so one div with its text is displayed at a time every 5 seconds or so.
