    Question Garbled code in mailto link ?

    When creating a mailto link and you would like the user to complete after certain words in the email, how do you make the spaces please ?

    For example, in html for the email, it might say :

    First name:     

    Last name:     

    Now, in IE6, all comes up ok when clicking the mailto link, but when viewed in FF, it looks like :

    First name:

    Last name:

    I have Googled and searched this excellent site, but see no reference to this.

    Can anyone help please ?
