Question for Matt Cutts about hidden content on a web page:

“Regarding hidden content, my site has a ‘Read More’ dropdown window to coexist with the simplistic design elements. The box contains optimized content, keyword anchor text linking deeper into the site, etc. Will I be penalized for this? Alternatives? Jim”
