Hide email addresses with ISO Characters

// March 17th, 2010 // Development, Javascript, XHTML

Putting email addresses on websites is easy pray for screen scraping spam monserts. There are various techiques out there such as using graphics instead of text, or using javascript. The technique I like is to convert individual characters in an email address into ISO characters. Einstein once said that never memorise anything you can look up in a book, so I don’t want to walk around with ISO character numbers in my noggin. I created this little tool to convert email addresses into ISO codes. Just put in your email address. It will prefix your email with a “mailto:” too.
