Mail To

Are you an avid Web page designer? Well, maybe you’re not a complete pro yet, but you like to experiment with the different features that your Web site program (FrontPage, Dreamweaver, etc.) offers, right? Well, we all know that it takes a lot to put a Web page together and every program does things a little differently, but there is one thing that always stays the same within Web site creation.

What is it, you ask? It has to do with inserting e-mail addresses into a Web page. There may be times when you want to link an e-mail address so your readers can click on it and be able to instantly e-mail that person. To do this, you must type mailto: before the actual address. For example, if you were e-mailing WorldStart, you would type:

If you don’t include the mailto: part, the address won’t be linked on your Web page. It’s always a good idea to link e-mail addresses, because it makes it easier to contact people. Maybe you’d like your readers to e-mail you. If you link your address, they can do a simple click and an e-mail window will automatically pop up. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
