We have one application where we are taking inputs from users using a
form and then we are compiling a mail using these inputs. Then using
"mailto:" we are invoking outlook to send the mail.


The problem we have observed is:


If you enter japanese words in input form field on windows (english)
machine the multi-byte words are represented in their hex encoding in
the mail. I have observed that the encoding scheme used in the mail is
UTF-8.


Similar issue is not observed with windows (japanese). That is the
characters are represented correctly over there.


Can some one explain this behavior.


We dont want to use any script as a target of 'mailto:'


Thanks in advance,
Ganesh
