    mailto: subject

    Thanks to jthayne, my form submits an e-mail that is legible to the person who will be using it. Now I have a new question in regards to this same function. I know there is a way to insert a specified "Subject" in an e-mail produced by the "mailto:" instruction, but I do not know how to. First, what would be the instruction to do this? Second, do you think it would work from a form submission?

    Re: mailto: subject

    Here is a great how-to on mailto links.

    But to answer your immediate question, use the following:
    Code:
    <form method="post" action="mailto:foo@bar.com?subject=My+Subject">

    Thanks again jthanye for your prompt and very helpful help
    I can see by the site you linked, it is time for me to start learning about CSS and scripts. I have known this for a while but now I have a few sites to do and the would benefit more if I did.

    Thanks again
