Error: 

*	Error Line 255 column 121: end tag for element "A" which is not
open.
....e1 + "@"  + e2 + e3 + "." + e4 + "</a>,")
This was happening on my website - www.anthonyashton.net
<http://www.anthonyashton.net> . The reason this JavaScript was produced

is to stop email spiders from adding your email to their spam list.
However, if you remove the
</a> then the text following also becomes hyperlinked. I got around this
problem by removing the
</a> (which should really be there I might add) and then putting the
JavaScript in a table so to
contain the run-away hyperlinking.
 
Surely this should be altered?
