Wrote a huge PHP-Program years ago. Now i want to obfuscate all e-Mail addresses on my pages. Plan to do it as follows:
>>Event "Prerender"
1. replace all plaintext emails and email links with span elements.
2.Encript and store email addresses in javascript variables.
3. Javascript decryption routines are triggered by the browser on 'window.onload' event and replace the span elements with the real email addresses.
There is only ASP examples with Event-Handling.

I actually have a php class intended to convert links with nofollow to javascript that I haven't released yet, but the code does most of what you want.

The PHP converts links into a span with a html5 data element which is encrypted based upon a key you set, and there is a corresponding javascript file to decrypt.

It doesn't rely on any other javascript library, and I use it async.

I have actually been running it live mainly in the comment section of my blog (http://andybeard.eu) for the last few month.

If you want a copy of the code just contact me via my contact form on my blog.

The code is free... I just haven't decided how free - part is based of of some MIT licenced code, but I am going to also release it as a WP plugin (which I also have running) which in theory means at least some of the code, maybe all has to be GPL.

If you want to obscure email addresses, this example might do the trick.
<?php // RAY_obscure_email.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);


// DEMONSTRATE HOW TO ENCODE EMAIL ADDRESSES TO REDUCE 'BOT HARVESTING


// RETURN OBFUSCATED STRING
function obscure($raw)
{
    $chrs = str_split(trim($raw));
    $done = '';
    for ($k=0; $k < count($chrs); $k++)
    {
        $done.='&#'.ord($chrs[$k]).';';
    }

    // RANDOM UPPERCASE CHANGES
    $nums = range(65,90);
    $chrs = range('A', 'Z');
    $ran1 = rand(65,90);
    $ran2 = rand(65,90);
    $ran3 = rand(65,90);
    $done = str_replace('&#' . "$ran1" . ';', $chrs[$ran1-65], $done);
    $done = str_replace('&#' . "$ran2" . ';', $chrs[$ran2-65], $done);
    $done = str_replace('&#' . "$ran3" . ';', $chrs[$ran3-65], $done);

    // RANDOM LOWERCASE CHANGES
    $nums = range(97,122);
    $chrs = range('a', 'z');
    $ran1 = rand(97,122);
    $ran2 = rand(97,122);
    $ran3 = rand(97,122);
    $done = str_replace('&#' . "$ran1" . ';', $chrs[$ran1-97], $done);
    $done = str_replace('&#' . "$ran2" . ';', $chrs[$ran2-97], $done);
    $done = str_replace('&#' . "$ran3" . ';', $chrs[$ran3-97], $done);

    // RANDOM NUMERIC CHANGES
    $nums = range(48,57);
    $chrs = range('0', '9');
    $ran1 = rand(48,57);
    $ran2 = rand(48,57);
    $ran3 = rand(48,57);
    $done = str_replace('&#' . "$ran1" . ';', $chrs[$ran1-48], $done);
    $done = str_replace('&#' . "$ran2" . ';', $chrs[$ran2-48], $done);
    $done = str_replace('&#' . "$ran3" . ';', $chrs[$ran3-48], $done);

    return $done;
}


// RETURN AN OBFUSCATED EMAIL LINK
function eMail($email='feedback', $subject='', $label='', $title='Email Link', $class='mailto')
{
    // SET DEFAULT VALUES FOR DOMAIN, EMAIL, SUBJECT AND LABEL
    $domain = $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"];

    {
        $email .= "@" . $domain;
    }
    if (empty($subject))
    {
        $subject = "?subject=$domain Inquiry";
    }
    else
    {
        $subject = "?subject=$subject";
    }
    if (empty($label))
    {
        $label = "$email";
    }

    // OBSCURE SOME THINGS, BUT NOT CSS CLASS
    $mailto  = obscure('mailto:');
    $email   = obscure($email);
    $subject = obscure($subject);
    $label   = obscure($label);
    $title   = obscure($title);
    $string
    = '<span style="white-space:nowrap;">'
    . '<a class="'

    . $mailto

    ;
    return $string;
}


// CAPTURE THE ENCODED STRINGS
ob_start();


// CHARACTER CHECK USING THE OBSCURE CLASS STANDALONE
$str = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ 0123456789';
echo PHP_EOL . '<br/>' . $str;
