HTML telnet: link needs to work for SSH client

On a web page, if I include a link to "telnet:10.0.1.45", the link will cause a telnet session to open to the provided IP address.

Since we use SSH to communicate with our network devices, how would I create a hyperlink on a web page that would load my SSH program and connect to the device?

The correct way to do it is:

ssh://user:pass@example.com:22

An SSH client would have to be installed, and have registered itself as the default client for this to work, however.

What browser version(s) support this?  IE 6?  Firefox?

If you know the IETF or W3C standard, do you know what they are or have links so I can read?

^more up-to-date; I was mistaken when I said it was a standard; it's a draft headed towards standardization
