email links

I know I can create an email link with something like:

<a href="mailto:lindab@comcast.net?">Comments</a>

But that opens the mailer with just lindab@comcast in the To field.  I'd like to place more information in  the To field:

Linda Baxter <lindab @comcast.net>

Is there a way to do that?

Thanks

Just the way you discribed it:
 
<a href="mailto:Someone <someone@example.com>?Subject=Hello%20again">
Send Mail</a>
