Hiding email address with Hive Enkoder

A friend has a new web site. The desiger left her e-mail address in plain text, ripe for harvesting.

We can ask the designer to implement a form (is that safer?) or use something the Hive Enkoder.

I've used the Hive Enkoder for years with no problems on a small vanity site. Any caveats?

And, can anyone point me to the current site where I can get a hive ekoding done?  I don't know how to use the Ruby version I found and the location where it used to be has moved.

I'll split points for different answers...

Thanks!

Hello...

First, I would definately suggest using a form because whatever a browser can see/run (JavaScript) can be written into a e-mail harvester.  So any type of e-mail encoding wouldn't work well because you can just write a script to decode it while harvesting e-mail addresses.

Second, you can Enkode your e-mail addresses online by going to http://automaticlabs.com/products/enkoderform/ and filling out the form.

I hope this helps.
