    For example. I've been using this since 1998 on my pages on my personal site, and not once has it been "lifted" by a spambot. The only "spam" i ever got on the address I use, was due to a dictionary attack, and I never received another spam again. And its a fairly "easily" spammable type email address.
    That is what I suggested. The email encoder encodes anything into its equivalent decimal entity.

    It can be decoded by a spam bot (since the browser can read it) but the chances of a spam bot being that intelligent are at least 0.01%.

    My suggestion of the other things were to create a layered shield (although I only get spam when a spammer guesses my email) against spam like I have on my site.

      Though, that is for people who run Apache, and they would have to do that in an htaccess.

      How about those who dont run Apache ( ie IIS ?)
      There are only 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't
