I'm a web development beginner, so please bear with me - You go through great lengths to hide your email addresses in your html code. There are a lot of javascripts that do this. But then I have a forms page to get feedback which is sent to 3 or 4 email addresses and they are plainly displayed in my code. Is there anyway to hide these email addresses as well?

For an email form the address should only be present in the server side code. It can't be read by a spider or someone with a browser. Provided your host has reasonable security measures it would be difficult (and certainly not worth trying) to obtain the source (un-executed) file.

Sorry if I have misunderstood you.

Instead of using the @ symbol, use & # 0 6 4 ; (without the spaces). Spam robots are not recognizing this as an email address YET.

Hi, you can tried coding your form in a .PHP page instead? Whatever PHP code within the php brackets is hidden from public view when it is live. This is a common solution for creating web forms where the information received is emailed.
