Hi there,

I found a way to link to Skype through a link to start a call:

<a href="skype:MyName?call">Skype</a>

Is there the same available for:

- Yahoo Messenger
- Windows Live Messenger
- AIM
- Google Talk

Thanks for all your help ...

Yahoo Messenger seems to use: "YMSGR:", but I don't know how to go on.

Any idea?

Google Talk: See http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/remark,17046170#17046544.

And there is no such thing for Windows Live Messenger.
