E-mail address encryption

Ok, this is kind of neat: a program that takes your e-mail address, encrypts it using 10-bit RSA, then generates a JavaScript program to decrypt it and generate a mailto: link in a web page. Why do such a thing? Because if you post an e-mail address as plaintext on a web page (like, say, that link to spool@kenytt.net over on the left), it’ll be a matter of minutes before some lowlife scrapes it and spams you.

So I was setting up an autoresponder for homework assignments, and figured I’d give it a shot.
