    Red face A basic one about mailto

    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).

    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.
