I found this in a Wikipedia page on robot.txt of all things ...

I was under the impression that this was for the Google search appliance, not Google; does anyone know? And <noindex> is for mnogoSearch. Is this information just 100% wrong, or what? I may test it, but I thought I'd ask around too.

Directives within a page

The <NOINDEX> tag is a non-standard HTML tag whose intent is to indicate portions of a page that should not be indexed, such as common navigation or footer. Using it without a namespace will make XHTML pages invalid.

Google uses comments for the same purpose: <!--googleoff: index--> ... <!--googleon: index-->

Should I fix it for you?

Sometimes I wonder what people are smoking when they edit the wikipedia ;)

This would be a great feature for cloaking :)  That said, something like this could actually be useful for "white hats" too.

I didn't think so :)

My understanding of this is that it's used for the Google Search Appliance only, and has nothing to do with Google's normal web indexing.
