This class is meant to encode email addresses used in mailto: links inserted in Web pages to prevent harvesting that is done usually by spammers that crawl the Web to collect e-mail addresses of their future victims.

The class uses a combination of PHP and Javascript to encode email addresses and so make it harder, if not impossible, for spammers crawling robots to collect address to put them into their databases.

This is an alternative to the common solution of encoding addresses as "email at host dot com".

The documentation is currently only available in German.
