      Hi Joe:

      The Compendium has some notes on mailto at www.htmlcompendium.org
      --> html tags --> <.a>nchor tag --> href and scroll down a bit until you
      see mailto:. You'll notice under the "Links List" a link to "mailto
      argument Notes." Read the whole section because there are ramafications
      beyond the link.
