Doing it with style

css font COMMENTS

Welcome to my Comments Pages

Please note. I get a few hundred emails a week from visitors asking for help, or posing questions on how to modify my demos to suit their application and I read them all. Unfortunately I only have a limited amount of time to spend answering these questions.

So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

If you are asking for permission to use any of my demonstration then please email me with your request stu{at}

Another way to hide the mail address with CSS, but much less bloat:

<div style="padding:5px;font-family:'Courier New',monospace; line-height:0%;text-indent:1ex; letter-spacing:1ex;">

Nice idea. Opera doesn't quite make it though as it makes the y look like a v.

Also works with Konqueror, the KDesktop Enviroment's Browser.

It's very cool, but why not just display it as a graphic? This way seems like you will cut out some browsers, especially handhelds and phones...

The author of the article makes reference that spam bots are able to read image information from their files.

isn´t it enough (to keep the spam bots out) to "backward" the text
as shown in your e-mail-part?

@oli - backward text is probably ok but it would be easier for spam bots to crack it (and they will).

Whoa. That must have taken a while......

Great idea!
I've made a PHP class which I use to hide email addresses from spam bots. Here's a link to the demo and the class source:

Stu Love the site. it now my favorite site to go for css tricks. but would it be possible for you to put up a link up for you css file only? every time i find something I like I view source then copy it but I have to spend 5 minutes taking out all the adds links and everything else just so I can study the css only. Just a suggestion...

David Gunter:-
Resizing fonts within the browswer doesn't work for your CSS fonts. How easy would it be to implement that? This is a nifty idea, though.
(03.05.2006, 17:34)

I don't really understand how this is done? Is it just the combination of the div classes you are using?

Dan Atkinson:-
Another great piece of work Stu!

I think that combining this with some code which rotates css naming will make this a replacement for captchas. Saying that, captchas are still better for this sort of thing.

Come on guys (diggers), this is 2 YEARS OLD! sheeeesh ;o)
(03.05.2006, 19:05)

Looks cool :)

This method is only accessible for CSS browsers. For text browsers, screen-readers, braille browsers, handheld etc. this solution is completely unaccessible, so as the site webmaster using this technique ;P Nice c00l trick, but nothing more, not an universal and acceptable solution for the web.
(28.09.2006, 15:10)

OMG. I was already impressed with your CSS abilities, but when I saw this and copied it onto my site... well, I can't close my jaw yet. I'm amazed. I would love it if you posted an explanation about how this works (or is the concept behind it already explained on your site somewhere else that I haven't found?). You're the guru, in the true sense of the word.

You're incredible! - And a Bloodhound Gang Fan - I think... ;)
