I haven't come across this before so I know to turn to the home of the experts smile.gif
Do I need to add a space on either side of a slash that seperates two words so it will be crawled properly, or will the spider still be able to read the words properly if they seperated by a slash with no spaces?

No. It's ignored and treated like a space (last I checked). In the 90's when I optimized I used to like to leave a space just in case, but it's not necessary.

Thank you SO much, Jill. It had me stumped.
