An even simpler idea (which I suggested to NJAS) is to just make a GIF for 
the @ character (and maybe the . char).

That way

   the OEIS only needs to store a single GIF or two (instead of one for 
each address)

   it's almost as simple for a program to insert references to the graphics 
files into the HTML as it is to substitute the strings "_AT_" and "_DOT_"

   it's a lot more readable

This breaks cut-n-paste and MailTo:, but maybe some kind of script could 
help there...
