Myc, His or other tags

Has anyone already tried to use vectors encoding more than one tag that are
directly next to each other in an ELISA test. Specifically, we wish to bind
a pSecTag vector-encoded protein to nickel plates via the His tag and
confirm binding using an anti-myc antibody. As these two tags are only
separated by four or five amino acids, we are not certain if the myc tag
will be "visible" to the anti-myc antibody. We would be grateful for any
