Hi folks,

I was wondering if there is a way to introduce a carriage return into a simple mailto: link on a page, so that the body of the email message that is generated does not come out like a run-on sentence.

I'm hoping that in the same way %20 does the space character, another code might do the CR.

Thanks for your help.

Use "\r\n"

Hi,

Unfortunately, that didn't work.  

I'll include the pertinent text here:

<a href="mailto:info@mydomain.com?subject=Request%20for%20information &body=I would like more information. Please contact me. <CR GOES HERE> [You may optionally provide your phone number here, and the best time of day to reach you. Thank you for your interest.]"

Using \r\n in that spot caused "\r\n" to show up in the text.

Am I missing something?
