CGI: 'mailto' & internal server error
Posted on 2000-05-09
I am trying to define a footer so that the same links appear at the bottom of every page, eg: Home, Disclaimer, Contact, etc. The problem is that when I include the href for mailto, the page comes up with an internal server error.
Yes, the HTML is escaped. Yes, I tried escaping special characters in addition to escaping the block of html, and I've tried several different combinations of each: escaping HTML as a block and escaping individual characters.
The HTML is in the same footer with the other footer links, and they're fine. If I take out the href for mailto, the script is fine. Add the href for mailto, and it results in an error.
For example, this works just fine:
<a href="sitemap.shtml>Sitemap</a> |
<a href="http://www.mysite.net">Home</a> |
But if I immediately add
just below the other two links, I get an internal server error.
Anyone have any idea why? Thank you for your time.
