When using the mailto URL scheme with the Nokia 6600 browser, the line break does not work inside the 'body' text. According to the mailto RFC 2368, the %0D%0A inside the body text should create the line break into the e-mail text when the e-mail client is opened from the Web browser. However, this does not currently work in Nokia's XHTML browser.

How to reproduce

Create the following XHTML code: <a href=" The%20Subject&body=this%20is%20the%20message%0D%0AThe%20next%20row">Message to John</a> . The body text in the e-mail should be on two rows but it is not.


Corrected in S60 2nd Edition, Feature Pack 1 and Nokia 7610 onwards. S60 2nd Edition, Feature Pack 1 is on top of S60 2nd Edition.
