Ok, I'm probably getting old (new year and all that) but I can't seem to remember how, when you create a mailto link, you add a subject/title automatically for the mail ?

something like <a href=mailto:adress@AIP.xxx subject/title="My Answer is...">The Link</a> ??

Could you give me the tip ?

Thanks and best wishes (no personnal bugs this year).

[...] how, when you create a mailto link, you add a subject/title automatically for the mail ?Generally, you shouldn't bother. Using the mailto: scheme in this way can be unreliable[1]. It's far better to use a mail form where you can specify any content you like, reliably.

[1] Expecting a mailto: link to open an e-mail client at all can be somewhat optimistic.
