    I used Frontpage to build some forms on a website, but since FP stores the send-to email address in the html, they can be fished out by spambots and I'm getting tons of spam now.

    I need a good forms program that will build WYSIWYG forms with some security.

    I see that there's Coffeecup and a few others, but would prefer freeware or open source stuff.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would suggest PHP and MySQL. You can store the e-mail addy value in a database and program a PHP page to set it to a variable that will be held in RAM. The actual address will not be contained within the HTML output (I believe). You can get XAMPP (a combo of Apache, MySQL, and some other programs) from Apache Friends. Keep in mind, though, that this will only work if your webhost has support for PHP and MySQL (most do).
