I did it at my website using a simple bit of JavaScript. For those who have
an ancient browser or have scripting turned off I provide an e-mail address
for them in the form of a graphic (they can't mail using a simple click and
will have to enter it manually into their e-mail program but the bots can't
read it). With a bit of unintended wordwrapping it looks like this:
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">
    var prot = "mailto"
    var name = "webby";
    var domain = "johnmcgaw";
    var ext = "com?Subject=Web_Site";
    document.write('<a href=' + prot + ':' + name + '@' + domain + '.' + ext
+ '>');
       // -->
      <img src="button/envelope.gif" alt="Send E-Mail" width="40"
height="20" border="0" align=
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">
    // -->
       Otherwise you can send me a message at:<br>
       <img src="image/mailme.gif" alt="E-Mail Address" width="250"
height="20" border="0"><br>
Return address will not work. Please
reply in group or through my website:
