To a degree: it also makes sense if one is using Eudora, Pegasus, or any
other email program for Win95, Win 3.1, or Mac in so far as I know.
However, if one is using DOS, or Unix, based programs, then you are quite
correct, the html tags are problematic. But I would hope that those who are
using Pine, Elm and the like would read the "mailto:" as an instruction and
understand it that way. What do others think?
