Email links are used to open an email client to start a new email message. The syntax is similar to the links we have seen thus far. The value of the
href attribute begins with
mailto: and ends with an email address. For example:
<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">Email Paul</a>
It is good practice to include the email address as the text of the link, so that people who are printing the page or whose setup does not support email links can see the actual email address. For example:
Email Paul at <a href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org</a>.
See Links/Demos/Links.html for more examples of links with email links.
