However, the preferred way is 
smtp://host/user?subject=subject+body=yes+X-header=header
because otherwise the URL should be encoded to:
smtp://host/user?subject=subject&amp;body=body&amp;X-header=header
when it is included in an HTML page.

Since this would be defining a new spec, it should be done right the 
first time.
