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

Yes, that does work.  I've never seen it documented anywhere, though, so I was looking for some "blessed" way of doing it.  I gave you the points.  Thanks.
