    Of course none of those methods are accessible; what happens when one uses a text only web browser or ignores stylesheets? moc.liameym@lrac or carl@nullmyemail.com hardly useful; if you want to hide your e-mail address from spam bots the best way is the tried and tested contact form, simple as.

    Agreed. I use the old hashing/entities method (a = &#97;, b = &#98; and so on) - works a treat.
