2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/emailriddler/

3) Describe problem: Can you use Email Riddler to hide the email address to which a form is being submitted in FrontPage 2002? If so, how?

Almost no one around here uses FP, let alone that particular version. If the form is submitted to the user's email client then there is a good chance that riddler can be used with it, although I think there is a better option at that point. If, instead it use FP extensions to activate the server's email program, then probably not.

If you don't know the difference, gives us a link to the page or show us the code for the form. We would need to see it anyway to answer 'if so how'.

That form uses FP extensions so, cannot be used with with any email address encryption scheme that I know of. Because the email address appears only in a comment tag, it may be skipped anyway by spam bots. If you were to be of an experimental frame of mind you could try writing all or a part of the form using javascript, but this would render it useless to users without javascript enabled. However, if this is an established email address that is already receiving a fair amount of spam emails, it won't make any difference what you do.
