Hi, I have the following tag on a html page
<a href="mailto:?subject=s&eacute;minaire"></a>

when clicking on the link, I have a problem with outlook with the subject: it gives me:
 séminaire

this is an email that receive the customer and it should open the link (mailto) with correct subjet.
I didn't find on the net a table with special caracters for this specific case.
thanks for your help.
