Sorry, the way that function was introduced in this thread made me 
think it was not yet implemented ... if it already exists, and already 
works, that's excellent!

I assume that "mailto://foo bar?Body=this%20is%20how%to%20include%0a%0d
body%20text?%0a%0d"  is the correct way to include body text, for
both iso8859 and unicode encodings?   How do I do attachements?  
Some (but not all) of the things I want to email are HTML pages, 
which I think will work better as attachments, rather than as inline
body text ....
