Doing something simple, a mailto link

I have been working with forms and "mail to a friend" forms, and those are all well and good, but sometimes you just need to do a simple mailto link, such as I had to do the other day.

I knew how to do the basic code, such as a subject line or a contents line, but not much more. Good thing the web has a site for just about everything.  So, with no further ado, here is the site. One thing they don’t mention is that you need to use an ampersand. Without that, you won’t get to do more than one thing.

And this is what the code looked like "mailto:test@mtest.com?subject=
Send%20more%20information%20on%20SmartPay&body=Yes,%20I%27d%20like%20to%20
learn%20more%20about%20SmartPay%20from%20Financing.%20"

Isn’t that cool? Isn’t that so much easier then doing a form, when you can use the clients’ email program to do all the work?

The answer is yes.
