From what I have seen, IE/NN 4-5-6 and Opera 5 work across the board on all platforms. Opera 3 doesn't.

As I recall, this was a Netscape extension, so some browsers may interpret the subject as part of the email address, causing all sorts of entertaining behavior. It's pretty widely supported these days, though.

Nothing is going to accept:
<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject="Seminar Information">contact us</a>
There is one too many double quote marks in there. You will also need to encode the space as well as the quote marks.

You're right -- I typed too fast. The quote before the word Seminar shouldn't be there.
However, the space hasn't been giving us any problems that I know of. What should I be doing?

Using a %20 for the space is required. For the full spec of the mailto url, see [ietf.org...]
This is the RFC (request for comment) that details the spec for it.
Since it is a RFC, it is not a Netscape thing, but an Internet standard. Tools that understand URLs are supposed to understand this syntax.
