Can I make an email link with the subject line already filled in?

Email link with subject filled in

If you get alot of email through your website, I know you're wishing more people would put something in the subject field. Or, Let's say you have more than one product or service on your site, you can place a link for more information by each product/service and know before you read them what is being requested. Here's how:

This is the normal mailto link:

<A HREF="mailto:email@domain.com">Email Me</A>

To add the subject, simply add, &Subject=Your choice of subject here, after your address. The whole thing looks like this:

<A HREF="mailto:email@domain.com&Subject=Your choice of subject here">Email Me</A>

and produces this:

Email Me

How can you get the subject to be filled in with whatever is in the page title tags.

It should be a ? - not an ampersand:

<A HREF="mailto:email@domain.com?Subject=Your choice of subject here">Email Me</A>
