Perhaps he just wants to take people to a form where people can send him a 
message rather than put his email address on any page where it could be 
picked up by spambots.

I think this would be quite common.
I prefer not to put email addresses on web pages (or I'll try to obfuscate 
them somehow) for the same reason.

What if I want to put a contact form url in there AND (seperately) a website 
If I use class="url" for both how would a parser know which is which?
