Do you know if this will adversely affect search engine rankings? I was
under the impression that <h1>Meaningful stuff</h1><p>Meaningful
stuff</p> as near to the top of the page as possible would potentially
increase search engine rankings and placing this lower in the page would
potentially decrease rankings.

Many thanks for the response.
