Ah hhaaaa! I see, I see....
Ok, let's go a step further. (See, I missed you!) The "old theory" was that Google put more weight on the top and the bottom of a page, anticipating that a page would be written much like an English paper (introduction located at the top of the page and the conclusion at the bottom). This went hand-in-hand w/the title tags... i.e, making sure you used an <h1> tag in the intro.
Of course I believe in intros and conclusions, but again it doesn't sound like the intro has to be located at the top of the code for ranking reasons, it just needs to be at the top of the page in the browser to make sense to users. And if I understand right, <h1> doesn't really have any value anymore.
