Re: [NH] Tell me again...
- I have never done an absolutely positioned or proportional site using
DIVs. FYI, DIVs can also build a fluid page using percentages and be
cross-browser compatible too with a few tricks here and there!

- Hi ,
I need to learn the correct way to do a <a href= with a mailto that
includes the ?subject=
specifically in an environment where there is a data tag for [myemail] that
, when in html
makes this tag do its own complete <a href=mailto .... </a> from with in
the data [tag].
In other words, the [myemail] data tag (when used in an html message)
closes with </a>
and in the begining adds its own <a href and mailto . But I am used to
using in it in text
mailto with subject included, ... and I dont know how to do this in
html.... with this [myemail] data tag.
I hope this makes sense.
Can you help?
I forgot how to post, can you remind me?

Usually you use <a href='mailto:email@...?subject=Fred Jones
Silly Hair'>Email me about Fred's Hair</a>
But I have no idea what you mean by data tags for [myemail]. If this
isn't the answer/helpful, try the question with an example or two.
