mailto-link with umlauts

Hi,

does anyone know how to encode umlauts so if you use a mailto in your browser the notes-client starts and has umlauts like äöüß .. in the body. Actual we use something like

mailto:user@example.com?body=Beschreibung%20mit%20Umlauten%0D%0A%C3%A4%20%C3%BC%20%C3%B6%20%C3%9F%0D%0A%C3%84%20%C3%96%20%C3%9C%20%2B%20%25%20%26%20%2F%20%22%20%27%20%26nbsp%3B

starting the notesclient works so far, but the umlauts are scrambled (or does the above works on windows, there the umlauts are enecode in utf8). Does anyone has a link to notes documentation where the commandline options are described, how the mailto must be formated to work for notes

Thx

Use @Domino([Encode]) and @Domino([Decode])

We use php to create HTML-pages where the mailto-link occurs and on the webserver there is no lotus domino installed.
Are these functions part of the domino framework or how do I use them? I don't need URL in the mailbody, the mailbody can contain german umlauts and those umlauts should occur in the new opend notes mail-window

I guess the next problem will be http:Q_21159452.html so the length of what can be passed to the notes client is limited, but that is a thing we will not be able to change :-(

You should have told us that you don't use Notes R7. It works in R7, except for the non-blanking space...

Proof should be in your mail right now...

The non breaking space should occur as " " and not as " " ;-) It's just for testing and checking if escaping is working properly. The users use notes R 6.5.3. So it its workings with Notes R7 ists ok (also work in that case with kmail, evolution)
