I just registered so maybe this isnt the right place to do this...
But how do you do the mailto in html?
I know im complete n00b...
<a href="mailto:email@example.com">E-mail Me</a>
or with a subject field
<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org&subject=I saw your website">E-mail me</a>

It was the right place. If it was not, then it's no big deal, we just move it where it goes.

you need a ? after the first variable set...
then use & to separate the rest of the sets.
heres another mailto goodie---
<a href="mailto:email@example.com?subject=doggies&body=have a nice firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.comfirstname.lastname@example.org">click here</a>
keep in mind...
this may not work in all browsers and versions.
it works in ie 6.0 / nn 7.0 / ff 1.0 as far as i have tested.
