Placing an email address into a page is not a good idea in this day and age – actually for a number of years now – where harvest bots are trolling the Interwebs looking for nice juicy bits of data that can be passed onto those that like to send you SPAM messages.

** NOTICE: AS A RULE, do not place emails in the page, encoded or not. Best practice is to send the user to a form where you can vet out the bots and ensure that only valid correspondence is sent through your server.
