Curious if anyone knows how National Geographic achieved launching the ipad email browser filled in with HTML body content directly from their digital magazine? At the beginning of each article, there is an email icon displayed, and when you click on it mac mail launches with html content filled in and ready to share with a friend. From what I can find, the mailto: function won't send html body content.
yes, normally the mailto:-protocoll does not allow HTML code. But InDesign does! Thereby they are violating RFC definitions. So this only works in InDesign, not from HTML.
Just put this into the Go To Action of your button:
mailto:?subject=You've got HTML-Mail!&body=<div style="width:600px;"><img src="http://donemag.cc/images/38t.jpg" /><br /> <div style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-weight:100; font-size:12px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-top:16px;color:gray;">Johan nes Henseler</div><div style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-weight:700; font-size:18px; padding-top: 20px; padding-bottom: 20x;">DONE magazine</div><div style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-weight:100; font-size:14px;padding-bottom:0px">What you see is what you get. A HTML mail.<br /><br />Crazy.</div> </div>
Thank you so much, Johannes! I did try this earlier, but only tested through the desktop viewer which wasn't working for me. I just followed through to the content viewer on the iPad with success.
I guess the shortest distance between 2 points was, in this case, a straight line.

We seem to be seeing this function no longer work with Drop 20. Text that previously would appear in an email generated using the above method no longer does using the same procedure we'd established (embedding link in an HTML file called from the HTMLResources folder). Is anyone seeing this as well?
We embed them directly into the button links for our apps, (as the above poster mentioned) so I can't confirm that, but it still seems to be working okay with v20.

In a few quick tests I noticed some similar problems with v20, parameters
don't seem to transfer nicely to the mail app anymore.
