The key to a Dashboard widget is simplicity and this just doesn't have it. The logo and textual explanation are a useless waste of space. Remove them and just keep the top portion, and this would be a much more asthetically pleasing widget.

Great idea. Allows user's choice of either plain html or JavaScript cloaking. The only problem is that the html method leaves the text portion of he code intact and ready for harvesting, instead of cloaking it, as well. You get <a href="mailto:&#109;&#101;&#064;&#109;&#101;&#046;&#099;&#111;&#109;"></a>. Notice that a harvester will see "". Both the "mailto" and display portions of the code should be cloaked. To make it more obfuscated, it should also leave every 4th or 5th letter un-cloaked. Inserting a comment in the middle would not hurt either.

All in all, it is a very good start to a very good idea. I look forward to the next release
