HTMLBundle.sugar 1.0.2

October 9, 2009

Adds a new action to convert all selected characters into numeric HTML entities.

This minor update adds the new Characters To Numeric Entities action; this is particularly useful for obfuscating email addresses to prevent spambots from harvesting them while still leaving them accessible to everyone, regardless of whether they have Javascript or not. For instance, select the email address in this:

<a href="mailto:me@someplace.com">Email me!</a>

And run it through Characters To Numeric Entities to get:

<a href="mailto:&#x6D;&#x65;&#x40;&#x73;&#x6F;&#x6D;&#x65;&#x70;&#x6C;&#x61;&#x63;&#x65;&#x2E;&#x63;&#x6F;&#x6D;">Email me!</a>
