Search engine crawler confusion

Hi All,
I am using an accodian to display user comments on my page. When somebody clicks on the accordian, it opens and the comments page is loaded inside the accordian using AJAX. Now what my question is, will search engine crawlers be able to crawl comment page or not ? As it is not a part of the page initially and is loaded and displayed only when the accordian is clicked. Pretty confused about that. Thanks for your replies in advance.

regards

Disable JavaScript on the page, what is the user experience? Optimize that and you have no problems with search engines.

Google's crawler can execute JavaScript, but do not expect it be able to understand your application.
