    I don't know about javascript but it can be done with a Perl script. Check this out:

    In general...
    JavaScript = client side
    Perl = server side
    Reliably sending mail formatted the way you want needs server side support. The end.

    No, but it's easy enough to convert an HTML page into a Perl script. Just remember to print a content header of text/html. For example the HTML page

    [code]

    Hi.

    [/code]

    Would become

    [code]#!/usr/bin/perl
    use warnings;
    use strict;

    print "content-type=text/html



    Hi.

    ";[/code]

    Personally I prefer to use:-

    print qq{
    HTML Here
    };

    Instead. HTML often contains double quotes, so "..." isn't generally the best way to quote it.
