Anti-Spam E-Mail Address Encoding

Do you publish e-mail address on your Web site? For years, we’ve been suggesting that webmasters encode those addresses in JavaScript to prevent spammers’ robots from capturing and spamming those addresses. The only problem with this solution is that not all Web browser softwares can handle JavaScript.

Today, a smart Espa&#241ola pointed us to a better, simpler solution: Change the e-mail addresses into the equivalent ISO Unicode characters. The advantage of this solution is that any Web browser can handle it.

For example, ‘’ will appear to users as online form that converts any e-mail address into the Unicode equivalent.
