Yes. Why don't you put it in an image, like this one? www.speff.com/dj.gif

Because I can't figure out how to do that. When I try to do it Photoshop, I can get my complete text to show up in the box (canvas?). It doesn't wrap. The text just ends at the right side of the box.

I just clicked on "view source" copied your e-mail address, opened a new Illustrator document, clicked on the document, selected 14 point Adobe Caslon ^V pasted the e-mail, ^A^C copied that onto the clipboard, opened a new 300dpi Photoshop document, ^V pasted the clipboard onto the canvas, changed the color mode to RGB (or indexed) and saved as a transpartent GIF. Takes about 30 seconds. The only mistake I made the first time was not setting the resolution high enough and I got a lousy 72dpi image.
One thing I don't understand is why IE won't let me right click on the GIF and save it- it wants to save it as a useless BMP.

First post to this froup (though I have lurked for ... is Mrs the shortened form? How do you spell Mrs?

Mistress.

To confuse matters, the plural of "Mrs." is "Mesdames," "Mmes." (sources: MWCD11 and AHD4), which is likely to upset the sort of person who insists that "people" is not a plural for "person."

I don't know Photoshop, but I am sure if you work at it you can (a) change the font size or (b) change the canvas size.
You could even change the font color and type your email address ON the girlscout image. That way, no need to click on the image to go yet another step. But try it out as is. You may not have any trouble at all. After all, if you use an image with your email address on it, your correspondents will have to take the trouble of typing your email address into the TO: box.

If you keep your Temporary Internet File reasonably small, you might find the image saved there in its original format. Copy it into your desired folder and off you go.
I find myself deleting files in the Properties tab of IE the big blue E on the desktop several times a day and at least one time daily I clean out the cookies, which tend to have all those ad counters or hit counters, etc. that download themselves so they can bring more pop-ups and spam to me.

DJ, that page is not good for email hiding purposes - your address is in clear text in the html source of the page.

But will spammers be able to harvest my email address from the source code?

Absolutely. Web spiders and robots don't view the page as it would be rendered by a browser - they read the underlying text html source.

What they would see is below:

I was surprised enough to learn that the only woman I know who got married in the last three years (in the US) actually took her husband's surname. How retro.

I don't know more than a couple of married women in the UK who have retained their original surname after marriage. I don't know any who have created a new joint surname. It's just not an issue here.

If you are using Adobe's Photoshop, you put each line of text in a separate layer, position the line in each layer, and then flatten the image to make it all one layer. Then save as a .jpg or .gif. A .gif will result in a smaller file than a .jpg, and works quite well if the image does not contain a lot of colors. The girl scout photo is better as a .jpg, but text is better as a .gif.
You can write several lines of text in one layer using returns to break lines, but the positioning is much simpler using each line as a layer.

Rey's suggestion was to use the photograph image as a href to open a mailto: You can't use an image (your .gif) as a mailto:

The whole thing is a cat that can be skinned in a number of ways. The best skinning process is the way that pleases the user. Any solution has a downside. If a spam harvester can design a program that opens a html site to view source, then a spam harvester can design a program with OCR capabilities.
The whole thing was rather messy. Dena Jo wanted something that pleased her and would accomplish what she wanted. A suggestion was provided. A better suggestion was then offered and later implemented.

There's was no need to criticize the first suggestion. The high ground would be to just present the alternative suggestion and let Dena Jo decide what she wanted.
The important thing is that Dena Jo has what she likes. She also had the pleasure of learning some new tricks in an area she hadn't been exposed to before. I'm sure her second effort will take far less than seven hours.
