Embedded <a href> tags

One of our webpages has an "Email this page" capability.

I have coded a button that when clicked builds the necessary code to open the user's email client with the subject and body filled in ie;

<a href="mailto:?subject=.........></a>

Part of the body includes a link back to our page. Currently the link back to our page is plain text (http://www.company.com/.....) which email clients automatically interpret as a hyperlink.

I would like to explore changing the plain text link in the email body to an actual hyperlink so that it can read "click here" rather than the entire URL string.

Basically embed a hyperlink within another hyperlink.

We are running .Net Framework 4.0 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Thanks for your help.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The answer to the question is probably no. Refer section 2 of RFC2368 - body of mailto link must be plain/text


It is possible some mail clients might support a variation on this - however if you want standard results you will probably need to stick to the guidelines in the RFC
