Subject: mailto: + parameters? 

My question is probably marginal to html, but I did not find a thread about it
elsewhere.
Do you know whether it is possible to pass to the "mailto:" method also some
parameters, that can be filled in advance by the browser, like the subject and
even (part of) the message content?
This will allow to predefine a message structure for simple messages,
avoiding the hassle of an html form and the associated cgi on the server.
