When using a mailto type link, how can I set the subject of the email?
mailto: links are links which open up in your default mail client, whether it be Outlook, Netscape, Eudora or whatever your favourite is.

Here is the syntax for a standard mailto link:

<a href="">email me</a>

To add a default subject to the email, simply add on ?subject= to the end, like so:

<a href=" Subject">email me</a>
