have a flash form and the client want to do it the simple way ...

here is the code
for some reason it's not populating the body ( email and subject show up fine)


var mySubject:String ="Coremetrics Intelligent Offer calculated an increase in my site revenue!";
 
var Body:String= "Hi there  I just took the Coremetrics Intelligent Offer Revenue Calculator and my results were amazing. Thought youd like to take it too!";
 
txtSubject.text = mySubject;
txtBody.text = Body;
sendButton.onPress = function(){
	to = email1.text;
	subject = String(txtSubject.text);
	 myBody= String(txtBody.text);
	url = "\n\nCheck it out here.\n\nhttp://www.coremetricsintelligentoffer.com/"
	if (txtBody.text == Body) {
		trace("yee");
		myUrl = "mailTo:"+to+"?subject="+subject+"&body=Hi there  I just took the Coremetrics Intelligent Offer Revenue Calculator and my results were amazing. Thought youd like to take it too!\n\n"+url; 
			trace("yee"+myUrl);
			getURL(myUrl); //Hi there  I just took the Coremetrics Intelligent Offer Revenue Calculator and my results were amazing. Thought youd like to take it too!");
 
	 } else {
		
		getURL("mailTo:"+to+"?subject="+subject+"&body="+Body+"\n\n"+Body+url);
	}
	
	prevFrame();
};
 
/*txtSubject.onSetFocus = function(oldFocus:Object) {
	if (txtSubject.text == mySubject) {
		txtSubject.text = "";
		txtSubject.condenseWhite = true;
	}
};
*/
txtBody.onSetFocus = function(oldFocus:Object) {
	if (txtBody.text == Body) {
		txtBody.text = "Hi there  I just took the Coremetrics Intelligent Offer Revenue Calculator and my results were amazing. Thought youd like to take it too!";

try following code in a new FLA's first frame and you will see that it will work like charm:
//----------------------
var to ="test@test.com";
var subject ="this is mail subject";
var body="Hi there !! I just took the Coremetrics Intelligent Offer Revenue Calculator and my results were amazing. Thought you'd like to take it too!\n\n";
var url ="http://someurl.com";            
                  
getURL("mailTo:"+to+"?subject="+subject+"&body="+body+"\n\n"+url);
//------------------------

problem in your code is few characters like:

    (Hi there  I just )
  (Thought youd like )

these characters are not standard escaped character and seems like you have copy/paste it through MS word,  I hope things will get sorted for you now
