HTML_Obfuscate: func [ Plain [string! email!] /local out ] [ ; No need to convert email to string out: make string! 6 * length? Plain foreach x Plain [ x: to-integer x out: insert out reduce [ "&#" any [ if x < 10 ["00"] if x < 100 [#"0"] "" ] x #";" ] ] head out ] Not that there's any problem with using map (that I know of, as I've never used it). I just know that this version is faster because it uses mostly natives, creates the destination string ahead of time, and doesn't recreate an inner function with every call. Watch out though: In current REBOL, a function's local variables will keep their references until the function is called again (non-recursively); in this case that means the converted string. If memory is a concern, these kind of things matter. Probably not when obfuscating email, though :) Now, off to check out map ! - Brian
