Never use JavaScript only for what is basic functionality. If you obfuscate with JavaScript then (with most, if not all, JS functions for that anyway) you'd end up with no way to contact by email for those who don't use JavaScript for whatever reason.

When I use an email address I usually obfuscate with a small PHP routine - dynamically; but actually by now I favor using a form (which doesn't reveal an email address in the first place); and it can be further protected against spammers in various ways. (Yes, I know: not on my sites - yet - I want to make a generic piece of code for that, but coding is a ways off while I'm still struggling bringing Christiaan around again.)
