Simplest way is to create an image (jpg) and show it that way.  That's
much harder for the 'bots to read, but easy for the user to read.

Subject: [thelist] Using JavaScript for non-clickable email addresses

I would like to place an email address on a page, but I do not want 
SPAM Harvesters to see the address.  I have a solution to display 
useable/clickable email addresses, but I need to find a solution to 
display an email address that is not clickable as well.

I do not want to just type <p>person at domain.com</p> b/c there are 
harvesters that easily pick it up.  So, what I need is a complex 
(javascript) solution to something very simple...unfortunately.

I know that there is no safe approach to this, b/c harvesters are 
always evolving, and I cannot currently do the email protection server 
side.  It is heading that way, but will not get done for a few months.

So, is there a simple js snip that will produce plan text?

Something along the lines of what is on this page...

...only plain text needs to be produced in place of a functioning email 

Any one have an idea?
