I don't like this sort of thing, but I have a client who needs it. What
I did for them was to put the email address on the page encoded with
base64, and use client-side script to decode it. i.e. the encoded data
is replaced with the decoded data, once on page load. Hook up the decode
function on the browser-side to your page load scripts. No jQuery
required :)
