Disguising email addresses in html.. Sat Dec 31, 2005 8:21:02 AM#14178Perm Link
What is the best way to disguise an email address from spam bots? A few I have seen/used are the @ sign as an image, which I like because in Firefox, not IE (obviously), if you set the alternate text to "@", when the user highlights to copy and paste the email address, the image will be converted to an @ sign, and the user may not even notice. you could do it like php.net does it: "example at gmail dot com". And last way I know of is to stick random characters in the email address and tell the user to pick them out, which i dislike the most.
