Hi Eric

I want to add a link to a mail id in the conceptual content (.aml file). I tried used using the external tag. But it works only for external url i guess. Is there any other tag i can use to make this work?

Thanks and Regards

The following example will generate an e-mail link that works in all help file formats:
<para>Here is a
    <externalLink>
        <linkText>test e-mail link</linkText>
        <linkAlternateText>E-Mail me!</linkAlternateText>
        <linkUri>mailto:test@somedomain.com?subject=A Test E-Mail</linkUri>
    </externalLink>
</para>
