Using <span>-tag to hide e-mail-adress

(mail-adress: test@homepage.at)

A trick to hide the e-mail-adress from spam-bots is to use the span-tag in html. Spam-bots search the code for mail-adresses. The span-tag allows us to type the mail-adress in the wring order (from right to left), so the searching software for spam cannot find it automatically and use it for spam-mails.
The direction statement makes it possible to show the mail-adress from right to left (rtl), so that customers of the homepage can view it originally.
