Um, (unless I'm missing something) the methods below both produce
machine-readable email addresses.  SpamBots are as capable as browsers
at executing JavaScript and then interpreting the results.

The neatest trick I've heard about had to do with a mouseover handler
that changed the href of an <a> tag on the fly.  I haven't tried it,
and am wondering if the same can be done for a screenshot image
depicting the address.
