Gracefully degrading email obfuscation


 / Published in: JavaScript
 

URL: http://23rdworld.com/2009/04/08/email-protection-using-css/

This is a simple (comparatively) way to protect email addresses from spam bots, starting with JavaScript mail link, but unlike most scripts there is still an email address available to the user (optional) using a CSS hack to protect it - so it is selectable but not an actual mailto:link.

  1. <style type="text/css">
  2. .backwards {
  3. unicode-bidi:bidi-override; direction: rtl;font-weight:bold;
  4. }
  5. </style>
  6. <script type="text/javascript">
  7. <!--
  8. linkAddy=('alias' + '@' + 'yourdomain.com')
  9. document.write('<a href="mailto:' + linkAddy + '">' + linkAddy + '</a>')
  10. //-->
  11. </script>
  12.  
  13. <noscript>
  14. <p>Please email me at
  15. <strong><span class="backwards">moc.niamodruoy@saila</span>
  16. </strong>.<br /></p>
  17. </noscript>
