Scrambling email addresses.

To make it more difficult for spam bots to "harvest" email addresses from your pages you can use this "scrambler" that turns the email address into its ASCII code equivalent.

Enter the email address in the first field and hit the submit button. The scrambled address will be displayed in the second field.

Copy the scrambled code and paste it where the email address should go in you code. (The ASCII code will be automatically selected for you, so you just need to hit "copy")

Enter the email address:
The "scrambled" email address is displayed here:
Hit submit after entering the email address. Then paste the scrambled address where you want it (in code view).
If you want to improve your chances even more you can embed the ASCII code in JavaScript. This code will create a mailto: link where it's placed in the body section of the page.

<script type="text/javascript">
document.write("<a href='mailto:
put your scrambled address here'> Contact us!</a>")
// -->

If you don't want to wrap the ASCII code in JavaScript you can use an ordinary HTML link, like this:

<a href="mailto:put your scrambled address here"> Contact us!</a>
