Hi Saqib Ishfaq

I edit your post to "censor" the email address you have in the HTML line. This is a public forum that is accessible by anyone (or anything), so it is really not a good idea to include your email address in the post, as this can open you up to being spammed or targeted for scams. It is up to you if you want to post this information, but I felt I should inform you of the possible negative consequences.

Keep Coding! :)

Saqib .......This works for me in Chrome. I just deleted the // and the // that surrounds it. <p><strong>Email:</strong><a href= "mailto:coolblablabla@gmail.com?subject= Hi%20there!" >coolblablabla@gmail.com</a></p> Give it another try or try it in another browser.
